Ten key elements for implementing interprofessional learning in clinical simulations
This paper discusses 10 key elements for the design and implementation of interprofessional education (IPE) in a skills centre. The elements are based on published literature as well as on the experience of an IPE initiative, simulating the management of a multiple-traumatised patient in the acute and rehabilitation phases, by students from 4 professions: medicine, nursing, occupational therapy and physiotherapy. The key elements are interrelated and include the partners involved (learners, facilitators and patient simulator), the content, learning resources, setting, faculty development, logistics, learning strategies and evaluation.
