Abstract

Introduction/background: A key competency for graduates of all health professions is the ability to work effectively in interprofessional teams. Inter-professional learning (IPL) opportunities at university can assist students in obtaining necessary capabilities for inter-professional clinical practice. Clinical simulation can also provide meaningful safe learning experiences where students can practice interacting and working as part of an inter-professional team.The sustainability of IPL and simulation activities, however, can be challenged by a range of factors,which can be difficult to manage and overcome.Aim/ objectives: The aims of this symposium are to discuss: Participant experiences of successful IPL and simulation activities along with Institutional enablers and barriers to sustaining IPL and simulation activities. The opening presentation will highlight factors that have influenced the sustainability of IPL simulation activities, by drawing from experiences across 10 professions involved in Clinical Learning in Extended Immersion in Multi method Simulation (CLEIMS) at Griffith University. This symposium will assist educators from different disciplines in enhancing sustainability in their own IPL and simulation activities.List of Presentations• CLEIMS overview, who what and when?• Student participation and engagement: why it works and what makes it go wrong?• Program commitment and flexibility: Be ready for the surprises• Collegiality and friendship: Key even more so than funding• Institutional support and resourcing: A top down passion to have IPE embedded into all health courses and a framework to do so.Discussion: Issues/questions for exploration or ideas for discussion: What are the different types of IPL simulation activities that occur at your institution? What are the challenges in sustaining IPL simulation activities at your institution? What are the enablers to sustaining IPL simulation activities at your institution?
