Interprofessional Care for People with Multiple Chronic Conditions
The Interprofessional Care for People with Multiple Chronic Conditions (IPCMCC) modules will prepare you to work in interprofessional teams to foster self-management by patients with multiple chronic conditions through the application of proven coaching strategies.
The ICPMCC materials focus on working within an interprofessional collaborative practice in outpatient settings, with an emphasis on coaching to enhance patient engagement and improve patient self-management skills. The materials integrate the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC)
interprofessional education competencies (IPEC Expert Panel, 2011) with the Chronic Care Model (Wagner, et al, 2001). All learning materials stress the importance of patient and family-centered care and the role of the community in supporting health and health care.
This comprehensive learning package includes a suite of complementary activities that can be used individually or together to enhance the health professional curriculum, including:
- A self-paced eLearning course that teaches core concepts of interprofessional care for people with multiple chronic conditions through rich multimedia and interactive exercises, culminating in an immersive, video-based decision-making experience;
- A collection of online collaborative learning activities through which learners can apply new learning through peer dialogue in the context of case-based scenarios; and
- Reflective practice questions to guide the integration of learning from clinical experiences.
