Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative WIKI
The CIHC is a national hub for interprofessional education, collaboration in healthcare practice and patient-centred care. CIHC has introduced this wiki as a way for projects, individuals, organizations and government agencies who are interested in interprofessional education for collaborative, patient-centred practice to share, search and link with others who have similar interests.
International Network of Health Care Team Challenges™
In June 2011, the College of Health Disciplines hosted The International Health Care Team ChallengeTM Workshop. International experts with experience running a Health Care Team ChallengeTM (HCTCTM) came together and formed the International Network of Health Care Team Challenges (INHCTC) This Network will collaborate to advance this interprofessional education (IPE) model through an international research program that will facilitate a better understanding of how the IPE model impacts collaborative practice in primary and community-based healthcare. The goal is to demonstrate that students who are exposed to this IPE model are more likely to engage in collaborative practice thus improving health care delivery. In addition, the INHCTC will refine and disseminate this IPE model for collaborative practice worldwide. The intent is to focus international attention and collaboration on embedding the HCTC into the curricula of health care programs as one strategy for improving health services delivery and health outcomes.
Health Care Team ChallengesTM or similar case based interprofessional models are now being used in Australia, Japan, Washington, Minnesota, Ontario and British Columbia.
International Network of Interprofessional Student-Led Clinics
In March 2011, the College of Health Disciplines hosted an international videoconference workshop. Student and faculty experts with experience running student-led interprofessional clinics came together to facilitate a better understanding of interprofessional collaboration (IPC) models in student-led community-based healthcare settings. The intent is to focus attention and collaboration on the issues of IPC in student-led clinics, evaluation of IPC and strategies for improving student learning, health service delivery and health outcomes.
