INTERPROFESSIONAL EDUCATION WEBINAR: FROM Online to Clinical Practice
The Irish INHED IPE Special Interest Group hosted their inaugural CPD event on Tuesday 18th August 2020.
Using the online necessity of the current climate, the SIG were delighted to host two Australian IPE experts, Dr Sherryn Evan from Deakin University and Dr Margo Brewer from Curtin University. Dr Evans provided an insight into the challenges and opportunities of online IPE, while Dr Brewer outlined how IPE can be incorporated into clinical education during placements. Key learnings from the webinar included assembling a group of interested and engaged educators, identifying the key objectives and building on initial small scale innovations. Online chat during the session and later on Twitter reflected the learning and encouragement provided by both speakers, as well as the enthusiasm for IPE among healthcare educators.
For anyone wishing to read some of the online discussion you can do so using the Twitter handle #INHEDIPE
