Practice IPE Activity Guidelines
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday December 18, 2017
- The present call aims at providing LAU health and social students with IPE learning activities in the practice setting (inpatient, outpatient, community).
- This call is for interprofessional practice activities to be offered during the Spring 2018 term.
- For every wining IPP project, a stipend of $400 will be awarded to the lead faculty and $200 to the other faculty members involved.
- Application forms (found on page 2) and supporting documents should be submitted by email to Dr. Nadine Zeeni (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday December 18, 2017 and will be reviewed by mid-January 2018.
The activity must be consistent with the IPE definition: Interprofessional education occurs when multiple professions learn about, from and with each other to develop cohesive practices that improve health care and social well-being.
Examples of collaborative IPP: patient are rounds, outpatient services, quality improvement projects, simulation activities, medical records review, OR team training, community-based project, innovative collaborative practice models, health and wellness awareness events

- The activity will involve students from two or more LAU health and social care majors: nursing, medicine, pharmacy, social work, and dietetics/nutrition.
- The activity will occur in any of the patient care practice setting (inpatient, outpatient or community) and engages students from an interprofessional care perspective. Practice settings outside of LAU (e.g. other hospitals where students regularly rotate, community sites) may be considered.
- The activity will entail a minimum of two encounters with the students (e.g. event preparation, execution and debrief).
