IPECP and patient safety in the light of the Corona pandemic
A highly relevant topic to many of us that will focus on the necessary changes to student clinical
placements and education practices in relation to the Corona pandemic outbreak in 2019/2020.
Human rights and IPECP
This topic about human rights and IPECP ask questions regarding how we include the patient in our
education and clinical practice.
Internationalization abroad or at home – sustainabiliy?
Could IPECP be the catalyzer for a more sustainable practice promoting both cultural awareness and
patient safety? What does internationalization at home imply?
Didactics in IPE
This topic is about how to teach IPE with focus on patient safety. What competencies are assessed
and what criteria are used? Is the student assessed with a progression focus?
Different aspects can be contextually bound to a clinical setting and academic environment. The
theoretical explanations of framework can vary, due to cultural and historical factors, thus IPECP can
be viewed differently.
Current IPECP issues
Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice issues important to share to the IPE
community not covered specifically by the other subthemes.
