Abstract

Interprofessional education (IPE) involves sharing knowledge between two or more professional disciplines in order to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes. The integration of IPE within educational curriculum is growing in popularity but is also mandated by some allied health accrediting agencies. However, with the social distancing requirements brought forth by COVID-19, several universities and IPE experiences moved to virtual learning formats. This presentation will describe students’ perceptions, attitudes and implementation readiness following a virtual IPE experience across 5 academic healthcare programs within one university. This presentation will offer an example of the process as well as success and barriers of implementing an IPE experience virtually.
