Abstract

Interprofessional education simulations can help to clarify roles and responsibilities of team members, and increase student’s interprofessional communication skills. Teaching students to communicate and interact in interprofessional teams is supported by the World Health Organization, Institute of Medicine, American Nurses Association, and the accrediting bodies of medicine, nursing, pharmacy, respiratory care, and physical therapy. This paper outlines three applications in nursing education for using interprofessional education simulation videos. Each application addresses aspects of the Interprofessional Education Collaborative Core Competencies (Interprofessional Education Collaborative, 2016). These interprofessional education simulations provide students with opportunities to learn the roles and responsibilities of other healthcare professions, gain interprofessional communication skills, and learn teamwork and leadership skills.
