Possible IPE opportunities for students

Teams-035Following are just a few ways to get your students involved in IPE activities:

  • Allow students to participate on currently established teams in your workplace, such as Autism Team, Dysphagia Team, etc. Provide opportunities for the students to reflect on their observations of and experiences with the team.
  • Encourage your student to work with one or more students from other professions to develop and present a workshop/presentation for other team members (e.g., dietary and speech-language pathology students work together to develop and offer a presentation on diet modifications and compensatory strategies to nursing staff).
  • Arrange for your student to conduct collaborative assessments with one or more students from other health professions (e.g., occupational therapy and physiotherapy students complete assessments of clients/patients together).
  • Encourage your student to work with one or more students from other professions to implement a group program/therapy program (e.g. social work and recreation therapy students collaboratively plan and implement a leisure education program for adolescents with disabilities).
