User_GroupExploring interprofessional collaboration – do you belong?  In this student-led workshop, participants will use an interprofessional case scenario as a vehicle to analyze and reflect on issues related to interprofessional collaboration; in this case exploring team composition and role clarification.

Interprofessional education (IPE) assumes that collaboration across professional boundaries can improve client care. However, the effectiveness of this collaboration depends in some part upon how well practitioners can see themselves as being part of the team, can communicate their role effectively to themselves and others and how well they can understand and respect the role of other practitioners. Without a effective collaboration and role clarification, team functioning can be threatened.

In this health care scenario issues of anxiety, trust, trauma and loss are front & centre. Participants can expect to work in small groups, consisting of participants from both health care and non-health care disciplines at Ryerson, to discuss the potential interventions that can lead to improved collaboration, and client-centered care.
