This assignment aims to educate students on the importance of interprofessional collaboration and communication in medication safety and prevention of errors by watching an interprofessional mini-series and conducting an interview with a healthcare professional.

IPE Activity Learning Objectives
1. Students will describe a health professional’s and organization’s responsibility in the prevention of medication errors.
2. Students will give examples of the importance of written and verbal communication with other professionals in the prevention and reporting of medication errors.
3. Students will illustrate that teamwork and collaborative care are essential skills in medication safety and prevention of errors.
4. Students will generate a plan for their role as a leader to support a culture of safety in their organization.
WHY IS THIS ASSIGNMENT IMPORTANT?
Medication errors are one of the leading causes of adverse patient incidents in health care settings and often result in medical malpractice cases. As such, medication safety is a concern and interprofessional education is vital for preparing healthcare administration students for their roles as clinical department leaders and well as general administrative leaders that set safety, budgetary, and culture standards that can mitigate medication errors. Knowing about and valuing the skills and responsibilities of other team members and respecting each person’s role in the team leads to more effective communication and collaboration in the context of medication safety. The purpose of this project is to offer students an opportunity to become familiar with a patient’s healthcare team, including pharmacists and others that may be involved in the medication care-giving chain. Emphasis is placed on relating the knowledge and skills to real-world applications in healthcare settings. Through an interprofessional interview with a healthcare professional (e.g. nurse, nurse aide, physician, pharmacist, OTA, SLP, Rad Tech, etc) students will better understand their professional roles and those of others around the theme of medication safety and prevention of medication errors.
