Dr. Martin Reed, Radiologic and Imaging Sciences, and Jody Delp, Clinical Director of Respiratory Therapy, engaged students in their first interprofessional clinical simulation experience. Here they share a discussion of issues they considered in setting up the activity and lessons they learned from it.
Student comments on the benefits of the experience included:
- "We learned more about working with other hospital team members."
- "I appreciated learning about the specific tasks of another peer’s profession."
- "It's important to work with another profession and learn how to work with them before we graduate."
- "We learned about working with other students and understanding the importance of effective communication with them."
