Abstract

ASHA recognizes the value of interprofessional education (IPE) as well as interprofessional practice (IPP) and has recently adopted this model as core knowledge and skills for speech-language pathologists and audiologists. IPE establishes a foundation for team planning and intervention implementation. Professionals who make up the team need to learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve outcomes for both the individuals and families we serve. This introductory course will define IPP, provide a foundation to implement IPP, as well as identify barriers and provide suggestions for successful implementation. A fictional case study of a client across the lifespan will be presented to reveal the scope of practices which overlap various healthcare/educational professions. Pertinent information to diagnosis, treatment and outcomes and challenges will be illustrated through this case study. Come join us for this learning experience, and leave with insightful, practical information for your team.

Learner Outcomes

After completing this course, participants will be able to:

  • Identify at least two key components and benefits of IPP
  • List at least two barriers to implementation and at least two suggestions to overcome said barriers
  • Describe at least two core competencies when working on an IPP team
