The lab segments are: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Introduction of interprofessional team members </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>In the first segment healthcare teams are asked to discuss two questions regarding their profession among themselves and then with the other small groups in the lab. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Making the case for collaborative care in the treatment of chronic illness </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>After this discussion a quiz is given to introduce the concepts, benefits, and importance of interprofessional care in the treatment of patients. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Connecting with the lived experience of patient’s living with chronic illness - patient interview </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>The third segment allows students to interview a patient and family that is living with diabetes. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Development of an interprofessional collaborative treatment plan </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Based on the information garnered from the interview, the teams develop an interprofessional treatment plan taking into account the strengths and expertise of each discipline represented. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Implementation of interprofessional care within various healthcare settings </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Students then discuss how to implement their treatment plan within various healthcare environments and discuss the benefits and challenges of working collaboratively in diverse healthcare settings. </li></ul></ul></ul>The current training module was developed over an 18 month period with the purpose of providing students an experiential interprofessional lab on collaborative care. During this 18 month period different lab exercises and components were developed, piloted and then evaluated before becoming part of the current training lab. Pre- and post-training evaluations are used to continually assess and refine components of the lab.
