Presentation Summary:

Across Alberta, health care providers and physicians report they lack skills, particularly as they relate to Interprofessional Collaboration (IPC) Competencies. They report a concern and a lack of formal training on how to teach collaborative practice and teamwork to new learners. Funded by the Government of Alberta, the Health Workforce Action Plan (HWAP) included a 1.15 million dollar provincial grant to address this gap using simulation-based education. The goal of this initiative was to assess if an IPC competency based simulation education intervention improved interprofessional teamwork knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of health care providers and physicians.

Learning Objectives:

1. Gain knowledge of the research project and findings.

2. Discuss recommendations for improved practices.

3. Obtain first-hand experience with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) used for dealing with EVD.
