Case-based IPE Learning Modules

CCHPE offers three learning modules that focus more closely on the application of interprofessional collaborative care planning to solve a specific clinical problem.  These modules follow a blended-learning module, with both online and interactive components.  Online module materials and activities are hosted on Brightspace.

Unlike the Skills Training Series, modules are independent of one another; participating learners are together for only one afternoon to complete the module, with no longitunidal learning.  Learners from some programs  are required complete all three modules; others, only one.  Like the Series, the modules offer an opportunity for collaboration and interaction across health/social care programs at Memorial.  

Three separate Case-based IPE Modules:

Collaborative Mental Health Care Module
Friday, November 19, 2021, 1:00 - 4:00

Learners from medicine, nursing, pharmacy, social work, and psychology programs first review a case study and other background materials online before meeting for interactive learning activities.  The MH module is centered on a case study in which an older individual is prompted by their family members to seek help for their mental health challenges.  In the module, learners first meet in uni-professional groups (with peers in their own professional field) to review the case study and interview a standardized patient, portraying the individual describe in the case.  Following the interview, learners break out into interprofessional groups to share and explore other professional perspectives on priorities and approaches to care.  

HIV Care Module
Thursday, January 27th, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00

Learners from medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and psychology backgrounds first share their professional perspectives online in a case study discussion group in the two weeks leading to the interactive module.  On the day of the module, learners meet in their interprofessional groups to review the case, interview a standardized patient portraying the individual living with HIV, develop an interprofessional care of plan, and delivery that plan of care back to their client.  The afternoon closes with a panel discussion with representatives from the Provincial HIV Care Team.  

Health and Wellbeing of Children Module
Friday, March 4th, 2022, 1:00 - 4:00
Online Group Discussions Begin Friday, February 18th

Learners begin the module with an interprofessional online group discussion, centred around a domestic abuse case study.  On the day of the module, learners continue their discussion of the case in a synchronous, interactive environment.  The module concludes with a simulated case consultation and panel discussion with representatives from the Office of the Child and Youth Advocate, the Department of Children, Seniors and Social Development, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary, and other child health and protection professionals.
