At a recent Faculty/Academic Forum hosted by UW-Eau Claire Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, Assistant Professor, Meg Lagunas, PhD, MEd, RN, CCRN shared information about interprofessional education (IPE), a type of teaching in which students learn “about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes” (World Health Organization, 2010). Through her doctoral dissertation work, Dr Lagunas explored the qualities of exemplary IPE faculty in hopes to better understand what "makes" successful IPE faculty. Research suggests that IPE instructional strategies require that the educator not just present information and opportunities to practice but also actively role model.
