Experiential Education Webinar Series 

Interprofessional Education (IPE) Assessment Strategies in Pharmacy Practice Experiences 

Documents: Webinar Slides

Date: Friday, December 2, 2016

Time: 2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. EST

Webinar Description: The 2016 ACPE Standards mandate that pharmacy curricula prepare all students to provide patient-centered care as a contributing member of an interprofessional team (Standard 11).  Interprofessional team dynamics, education, and practice should be introduced, reinforced, and practiced in IPPE, and competency should be demonstrated in APPE practice settings.  This session will highlight general approaches to assessment of IPE in pharmacy practice experiences.  Additionally, assessment modalities from two schools of pharmacy will be discussed, including integration of common items across schools on summative end-of-practice experience evaluations and use of the validated quantitative ICAR (Interprofessional Collaborator Assessment Rubric) tool.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Identify skills and metrics for assessment of interprofessional education activities in pharmacy practice experiences
  • Describe two assessment modalities for IPE in APPE settings

Applying Validation Principles to Assessments in Experiential Education

Documents: Webinar Slides

Date: Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Time: 12:00 Noon - 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time

Webinar Description: Assessment is a backbone of pharmacy education and validation inference is imperative when using assessment instruments. This webinar will begin with a brief primer on validity, validation, and framework for validation.  Next, presenters will illustrate this framework using current instruments in pharmacy education. Application of this approach to experiential education will be highlighted, and followed with pearls for experiential education instrument creation and use.

Webinar Objectives:

  • Describe validity and validation principles
  • Use Kane’s framework for valid inferences from assessment instruments
  • Apply the validation process to experiential education assessment instruments
  • Highlight important caveats of instrument scoring and need for multiple observations

The "Why"s and "How"s of a Comprehensive Preceptor Development Program

Documents: Webinar Slides

Date: Thursday, January 28, 2016

Webinar Description: The 2016 ACPE Standards place a higher level of emphasis on preceptor development and accountability than previous version. Many schools (especially the newer schools) are now left uncertain as to how to provide the needed level of preceptor development to get/maintain accreditation. This program is intended to provide insight to Experiential Education coordinators, staff, administrators, etc... about developing a comprehensive preceptor development program. Case examples will also be provided.

Webinar Objectives

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the 2016 ACPE Standards that relate to preceptor development
  • List essential and optional components of a comprehensive preceptor development program
  • Identify common themes in preceptor development programs relevant to pharmacy education
  • Compare and contrast select preceptor development programs

Utilizing Patient Encounters to Personalize APPE Rotation Selection

Documents: Webinar Slides

Date: April 20, 2015

Webinar Description: The presenters will describe their experiences conducting a study aimed at (1) capturing APPE students’ patient encounters in ambulatory care and community pharmacy settings using an electronic standardized documentation system and (2) determining how this data informs incoming APPE students’ rotation selection decisions.  Lessons learned from this mixed methods study will be emphasized.

Webinar Objectives:

  1. Summarize the utility of patient encounter data from an electronic standardized documentation system in informing students’ APPE rotation selection decisions and curricular assessment.
  2. Apply the investigators’ lessons learned to current or future research studies.

Experiential Education Section Webinar 6: Interprofessional Education in Experiential Education


Topic:
Interprofessional Education in Experiential Education

Documents:

Presentation - Baugh
Presentation - Ottis
Presentation - Scott and Williamson

Date: December 16th, 2013 (Monday)
 
Time: 1 p.m. Eastern Time

Description:

Now that national competencies for interprofessional education (IPE) and collaboration (IPC) have been adopted and accrediting bodies are requiring their implementation, all health professions schools are integrating IPE into their curricula. IPE is a natural fit for experiential education for it is only through face-to-face interaction with other health professions that our students learn to work with them effectively. Please join us for our next webinar that presents a collection of ways 4 schools are implementing IPE using a mixture of experiences, simulations, and projects that provide the opportunity for pharmacy students to learn with, from, and about other health professions.

We will hear about how West Virginia University School of Pharmacy is approaching IPE throughout their curriculum, and measuring actual patient health outcomes in their "My First Patient" program.  From the University of Missouri Kansas City we will learn about moving outside of the classroom with IPE focused on quality improvement. Auburn University will share how you can begin implementing IPE by reaching out first to one other profession and integrating them into your existing coursework (bottom up approach).  And, we will hear from Western University about a top-down, university-wide approach to implementing IPE across the curriculum as well as a way to be intentional about teaching IPC in APPEs. We will conclude the webinar with Q/A and discussion from our panel of speakers.

Documents: Programmatic Effectiveness 


Date: June 18, 2013 (Tuesday)
 
Time: 2 p.m. Eastern Time

In general, two approaches can be taken in measuring programmatic effectiveness: 1.) assessment of educational outcomes and 2.) measurement of administrative efficiency. We will be discussing how to measure the progress your program is making toward goals and the value it is providing.

We will learn how Auburn uses a systematic course review to assess experiential education(rotations) as well as hear 
recent efforts by the Southern Pharmacy Experiential Education Consortium (SPEEC) to measure an important administrative process, practice experience placement changes.

We will conclude the webinar with a panel of speakers sharing how they are assessing educational outcomes and measuring programmatic effectiveness in their experiential programs.
