Background/Significance of Problem/Issue/Concern: The College of Nursing and Health Professions (CNHP) faculty and members of the CNHP Wellness Committee offered an interprofessional wellness fair to faculty, staff, and students on February 6, 2020. This wellness fair was supported through the CNHP Faculty Development Award. The purpose of this wellness fair was to promote health and provide opportunities for interprofessional collaboration. The interprofessional disciplines of nursing, nutrition, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy, and kinesiology were able to practice the components of Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC) and TeamSTEPPS®. The wellness fair was used as recruitment venue for the research study.
Clinical Question: Does participation in an interprofessional activity and TeamSTEPPS® training impact students’ attitudes and perceptions of interprofessional practice?
Intervention/Research Method: Faculty organized and designed the wellness fair. Faculty of each participating discipline determined how students would deliver health promotion at the wellness fair. The students received TeamSTEPPS® training through face-to-face sessions or an on-line module. Students were recruited through course assignments and honor’s projects.
The research study used mixed methods through the use of two questionnaires and a focus group. In addition to the wellness fair; faculty, staff, and students had an opportunity to participate in a wellness program and brown bag lunch-learn sessions. A subgroup of students (nursing and nutrition) worked as interprofessional teams as wellness coaches for 8-weeks during the wellness program.
Findings: Sixty-eight people attended the wellness fair, faculty and staff (25%) and students (75%). In addition, approximately 59 providers offered services at six booths and participated at leisure in the wellness fair. The research study recruited 17 participants during the wellness fair.
Discussion of Results: The research study and interprofessional opportunity will be completed mid-April 2020.
Implications for Health Care Professionals: Students were able to practice interprofessionally during the wellness fair and program using the IPEC and TeamSTEPPS® competencies. Knowledge, skills, and attitudes gained through this opportunity could be applied to future professional practice.
