Abstract

Interprofessional collaboration in practice is an important skill, but creating interprofessional courses is challenging. Healthcare ethics is ideal for interprofessional education because no one discipline has authority over the subject. Most ethics courses for health science students, however, are based on the expertise of the instructor. In an interprofessional course, it is difficult for an instructor from one discipline to divine the needs of students from another field. The purpose of this paper is to methodically develop a graduate level ethics course for health science students based on a systematic review of the literature. The results are clear recommendations for creating a meaningful interprofessional learning experience in healthcare ethics.
