IPER Roles and Responsibilities 

January 9, 2018

The College of Nursing and Health Professions and the College of Medicine are currently collaborating on a video series highlighting each profession found in our respective colleges. Students and faculty from each department are being interviewed to share profession-specific information such as background, educational history and future, professional accreditation mandates, the reasons why they have chosen the field and what they hope to accomplish. The video footage will be used to educate all students on one of the competencies of interprofessional education, Roles and Responsibilities.

Interprofessional education is guided by four core competencies: Values and Ethics, Roles and Responsibilities, Interprofessional Communication and Teams and Teamwork. Roles and Responsibilities are defined as the ability to “use the knowledge of one’s own roles and those of other professions to appropriately assess and address the health care needs of patients and the promote and advance the health of populations.” (*IPEC, 2016) The goal of these videos is to share information about each other’s healthcare professions with one another. Through the process, students and faculty will fully articulate and define their own roles and responsibilities while also learning their limitations by recognizing expertise in other members of the healthcare team.

We are very excited about this development and the limitless potential of the video series. We are also enjoying our continued partnership with faculty and staff from the College of Medicine. Stay tuned for more information!

Thank you,
IPER Collaborative
