Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Competency Tools
Interprofessional Collaborative Practice competency tools include learning modules aimed at assisting Internationally Educated Health Professionals (IEHPs) to learn about interprofessional collaboration (IPC) in Canada and acquire skills to practice it. Interprofessional collaboration is important for Canadian-educated health professionals as well and it is part of their studies and the entry-to-practice competencies.
Interprofessional Collaboration (IPC) involves “working together with one or more members of the health team who each make a unique contribution to achieving a common goal, enhancing the benefit of patients. It is a process for communication and decision making that enables the separate and shared knowledge and skills of different care providers to synergistically influence the care provided through changed attitudes and behaviors, all the while emphasizing patient-centred goals and values.” (Health Canada 2010)
Communication and Cultural Competence Orientation Program
The Communication and Cultural Competence orientation program provides physicians with comprehensive information about Canadian medical practice, and in particular the communication skills and cultural competencies required for patient-centered care. The free, online self-education program provided by the Medical Council of Canada is based on case studies that give examples of everyday medical practice in Canada, covering topics such as geriatrics, mental health, cross-cultural communication, intraprofessional teamwork, indigenous health, etc.
