T3-Train-the-Trainer August 2017

Five HSC representatives attended the University of Washington T3-Train-the-Trainer Faculty Development training in Seattle on August 14-17, 2017.  The purpose of the training is to prepare health professions faculty and collaborative practice clinicians from all professions to lead IPE efforts and promote interprofessional team-based care. The program will help build a cadre of faculty who can lead IPE across the learning continuum from classroom-based activities to collaborative practice in clinical and community sites.

Training consisted of a 3.5-day curriculum co-developed by experts from three universities with established IPE training programs and a national advisory committee. University of Washington provided content, skills, and strategies for implementation of IPE and IPCP and facilitating and coaching teams of IP learners. 

Content included:

  • Designing IPE cases and curriculum, assessing learning outcomes across the continuum of learning, and evaluating IPE programs and activities;
  • Leading change, providing and receiving feedback, improving team communication and team relationships utilizing established interventions and addressing implicit bias and the culture of teams; and
  • Content on how to continue to coach other members of the team when participants are back at their home institution.

Workshop format was heavily focused on experiential learning for the 3.5 days of in-person training. Pre-work was required, and teams will implement a project after the in-person training with follow-up coaching (quarterly webinars) provided by the T3 faculty teams.

The HSC representatives included Chris Kaunas, Director of Interprofessional Education; Martin Mufich, Clinical Assistant Professor with the College of Nursing; Bree Watzak, Assistant Professor of Pharmacy Practice with the College of Pharmacy; Gerard Carrino, Instructional Professor with the School of Public Health; and John Hubbard, Associate Professor with the College of Medicine.
