The Columbia Commons Interprofessional Education Committee is seeking faculty, staff, and students to facilitate workshops for the third annual IPE Day on March 31, 2020. The purpose of this daylong event is to dissolve professional silos and improve respectful, effective, person-centered care. In lieu of regularly scheduled classes for most dental, medical, nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, pastoral care, physical therapy, public health, social work, and genetic counseling students, the campus will join together in a day of lectures and workshops under the theme of Transforming Care Through Interprofessional Collaboration. We will explore how interdisciplinary teams can work together to transform healthcare delivery at the patient and family level, clinical service level, organizational level, community level, and systems and policy level.

Workshop sessions will be 75 minutes long. Morning workshops will be held from 11:30am – 12:45pm, and afternoon workshops will be held from 2:15pm – 3:30pm. We strongly encourage facilitators to present the same workshop in the morning and afternoon if available.
Workshops can be faculty-led, staff-led, student-led, or a combination but must be facilitated by an interdisciplinary team. It is ideal to have an existing partner or team in mind; however, we can help you find partner facilitators from other health programs based on topics. Sessions should include time for:
- Students to introduce themselves (10 minutes);
- A low-tech (i.e., non-PowerPoint) presentation or case study on the topic. Please note that we will not have adequate staffing to support varied AV needs (15 minutes);
- Small group active discussions, problem-solving tasks, interactive activities, or skills practice (40 minutes);
- Time for debrief with the large group (10 minutes).
Additional considerations for workshop design below:
- Whenever possible, try to draw connections between your topic area and the varied professional perspectives and roles that will be represented in the room. These workshops should provide an opportunity for interprofessional communication and team building.
- Sessions should have an emphasis on practical applications or strategies and incorporate actionable take-aways. Therefore, consider focusing your topic on a specific concept rather than trying to cover too much.
