Instructional Companion Guides
Companion Guides support simple classroom implementation with ideas and resources for activities like group discussion, prompts for reflection, and the invitation to share clinical experiences from the field.
Certificates of Completion
Personalized Certificates of Completion are awarded for successful completion of a module, formalizing a learner’s efforts and providing documentation of interprofessional training on a given topic.
The modules are a great learning tool for faculty, students, clinicians and other health professionals. Designed to be brief, engaging and relevant to all health professions, they can easily be integrated in face-to-face and distance learning courses, as well as clinical rotations, to support competency development in teamwork performance.
The Core Interprofessional Modules cover the foundational knowledge of team-based care and collaborative practice. The modules use a case-based learning approach with realistic scenarios of patients and families seen in a variety of primary care settings. General categories of interprofessional competencies, such as knowledge of team members’ roles and communication and conflict-management strategies, are embedded in actual clinical situations and decisions.
The Interprofessional Primary Care Modules emphasize team-based decisions and skills required for current and evolving primary care practice and continuum-based care. They include up-to-date information and tools for team-based practices central to high quality health care, including care coordination and integrated care, team decision-making and habits of high-performing teams.
