Innovation in Clinical Team Training: Using Novel Distance Technology to Support Healthcare Teams Caring for Vulnerable Populations

The Preceptor’s Guide to the Nexus: Supporting the Role of Preceptors in Optimizing the Interprofessional Clinical Learning Environment

Project overview: Health systems are faced with a dual challenge of “optimizing learning and patient care”, while preparing health professions learners for interprofessional, integrated team-based care and collaboration (NCICLE, 2019, p. 4). Clinical preceptors occupy an important space at the nexus between interprofessional education and collaborative practice, but most were trained in a specific discipline with traditional roles and chains of command, and learned how to practice in teams through “example, trial, and error” (Kennedy, 2018, p. 7). As a result, health professions learners…
