Abstract

Interprofessional collaboration improves patient outcomes. Many institutions lack access to learners from other health care professions, limiting the feasibility of many published interprofessional curricula. We created a video-based workshop to fill the need for an introductory interactive interprofessional activity for third-year medical students (MS 3) in their internal medicine clerkship, in which other health care students and standardized patients were not readily accessible. This session introduced medical students to the interprofessional model of care through a video workshop. Learners engaged in reflective observation as a video presented a physician interviewing a patient. The training and roles of interprofessional providers were discussed with the aid of video demonstrations. Learners completed postworkshop and postmedicine clerkship surveys with responses indicated using a Likert scale (1 = strongly disagree, 5 = strongly agree). Sixty-seven MS 3s participated in this workshop; postworkshop survey response rate was 82%. Of students who responded to the surveys, 87% agreed that the video increased their understanding of when it would be beneficial to consult interprofessional team members. Students' confidence in interacting with interprofessional team members improved from a mean of 3.0 before the workshop to 3.7 after the workshop. At the end of the medicine clerkship, 71% indicated that the video improved their ability to work with interprofessional team members at least moderately. This video-based workshop improved students' self-rated understanding of interprofessional team members' roles and increased their confidence interacting with other members of the interprofessional health care team. © 2021 Szafran et al.
