Interprofessional education: a concept analysis.

Olenick M, Allen LR, Smego RA - Adv Med Educ Pract (2010)

Bottom Line: Furthermore, there are several different interpretations, overlapping terminologies, interchangeable terms, and a lack of uniformity of a definition for interprofessional education.This concept analysis determines the attributes and characteristics of interprofessional education, develops an operational definition that fits all health-related disciplines, defines common goals, and improves overall clarity, consensus, consistency, and understanding of interprofessional education among educators, professionals, and researchers.Through effective incorporation of interprofessional education into curricular and practice settings, optimal patient-centered outcomes can potentially result as effective and highly integrated teams facilitate and optimize collaborative patient care and safety.

ABSTRACT
Interprofessional education is broadly defined as a teaching and learning process that fosters collaborative work between two or more health care professions. Interprofessional education, as a proven, beneficial approach to collaborative learning that addresses the problems of fragmentation in health care delivery and separation among health care professionals, is frequently promulgated but not always successfully implemented. Furthermore, there are several different interpretations, overlapping terminologies, interchangeable terms, and a lack of uniformity of a definition for interprofessional education. This concept analysis determines the attributes and characteristics of interprofessional education, develops an operational definition that fits all health-related disciplines, defines common goals, and improves overall clarity, consensus, consistency, and understanding of interprofessional education among educators, professionals, and researchers. Through effective incorporation of interprofessional education into curricular and practice settings, optimal patient-centered outcomes can potentially result as effective and highly integrated teams facilitate and optimize collaborative patient care and safety.

f1-amep-1-075: Iterative “color wheel” concept map for interprofessional education (IPE).

Mentions: A “color wheel” concept map depiction of IPE is shown in Figure 1. Attributes, antecedents, consequences, empirical referents, challenges, facilitators, learning types, and professions are represented. The iterative “color wheel” representation was chosen because of its ability to display colors/characteristics of IPE as possessing the ability to shift and mix with other colors/characteristics to describe the concept’s multidimensional potential. The “color wheel” is a reflection of knowledge development, research, and functional implications of IPE.
