There remains a significant gap in the literature regarding validated tools to assess interprofessional education core competencies (IOM, 2015). Educators and clinicians at Jefferson University sought to address this gap by leveraging the IPEC competencies to create an easy-to-use tool: the Jefferson Teamwork Observation Guide™ (JTOG). Initially used for the formative assessment of student teams, the application has been enhanced to allow for the 360-degree observations of teamwork behaviors in a multitude of educational and clinical settings.

Evidence to support the use of patient voice beyond the examining room is growing. Yet despite its identified merits, use of patients as educators and key informants remains relatively sparse. Moreover, integration of the arts in health curriculum is rare if not absent entirely from curriculum. Recommendations of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation Panel in 2014 called upon health professions educators to “treat patients and families as full partners in care” and in the development of health care instruction.

For fifty years the long and winding road of Interprofessional Practice and Education (IPE) has been fraught with grant-funded projects that are not sustained past the end date and, therefore, do not build a vibrant IPE program.  One problem is that planning for sustainability should accompany program implementation, but in reality it is often addressed well after an interprofessional program or initiative is underway or nearing the end of the grant period.

Over the past decade, simulation has become an important part of health science education, at every stage of professional development and experience. Simulation offers learners the opportunity 1. to practice common skills to proficiency; 2. to experience less-common scenarios before they see them in actual clinical practice; and 3. to experiment with and test novel approaches to difficult challenges. This is no less true for learners in interprofessional education and collaborative practice.
