Inter-professional Perioperative Training for Health Team using Simulation

In healthcare, an effective IPE can lead to collaborative

practice, improved educational outcomes, and better

patient care.
The objective of this project is designed to create an

educational scenario that allows trainees from medicine

(surgery, anesthesiology) and nursing to be educated

together during the perioperative period of care. The goal of this Inter-professional Perioperative Training (IPPT) course is set to allow trainees to develop shared team cognition and cooperative and collaborative team behaviors.
This project is led by Dr. Bin Zheng and Dr. Barbara Wilson-Keates, with a funding support from the Provost Office of the University of Alberta through the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Fund.
