FALL 2019

Session 1-6 (Thursday Evenings 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.)

Gayle Adams-Carpino CYW, RSW, MSW Lecturer, Interprofessional Education, Assistant Professor-Division of Clinical Sciences


This program is designed for undergraduate and graduate social, medical, and health sciences learners who are interested in directly applying the six competencies highlighted in the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (2010) Framework (e.g. role clarification, interprofessional communication, team functioning, patient/client/community-centred care, interprofessional conflict resolution and collaborative leadership). Learners will engage in weekly sessions targeting the six competencies. Learners will be responsible for integrating the knowledge, skills and attitudes acquired into clinical practice. A focus of the program will be the collective problem solving, designing and delivery of student interprofessional health promotion workshops with community non-profit agencies.


A written critical reflection paper (1-2 pages) supported by two peer-reviewed articles will be an expected deliverable.

Registration is limited.


After six sessions, learners will be able to:

Examine the roles and scope of a variety of professions

Analyze and experience how interprofessional competencies support effective client/patient/family/ community centred care

Cultivate an understanding of group processes and collective competence

Gain an appreciation of how the social determinants of health influence well-being

Increase knowledge of designing and delivering student interprofessional health promotion workshops with community non-profit organizations
