Plan of Study
The course requires a minimum time commitment of 3 hours of self-study per week and the ability to attend synchronous online sessions on Wednesday evenings between 6:30-8:30 pm. Participants are expected to attend all aspects of the course.
The Interprofessional Simulation Facilitation Course is a robust, blended online delivery course. In this 6-week course, there is a combination of synchronous and asynchronous activities comprised over five (5) modules. As you work through the course, you will see a variety of online activities including pre-readings, recorded presentations and other additional resources available for modules 1 to 4. Module 5 will be a face-to-face session where you will apply the knowledge and skills learned from the previous 4 modules. Each module will be completed over a one-week timeline, with the exception of module 3 (Debriefing), which occurs over two weeks.
This represents a general timeline for the program. The exact delivery model may vary between offerings.
- Week 1–5: Weekly asynchronous and asynchronous activities
- Weeks 6–8: Full day, in-person session of application of simulation (sessions may be scheduled at any point in weeks 6-8, learners will receive their scheduled session date near the program start date)
At the end of the course, participants should be able to:
- Describe and demonstrate principles of evidence-informed simulation-enhanced interprofessional education (Sim-IPE).
- Describe the requisite components of a Sim-IPE learning program.
- Describe and apply the principles of interprofessional simulation scenario design.
- Discuss and demonstrate the principles of effective interprofessional facilitation when debriefing.
- Incorporate the components of these modules into a Sim-IPE session.
