Simulation and interprofessional education in Social Work practice
Frantz, T.D. (2016). Simulation and interprofessional education in social work practice. The Advanced Generalist: Social Work Research Journal, 2(1), p 49-55.
Interprofessional Education (IPE) can be defined as "two or more professions learning with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care" (Hutchings, Scammell, & Quinney, 2013, p. 359). A theoretical framework for IPE is explored along with various applications for advanced generalist social work practice. Finally, an IPE healthcare simulation training with a group of master's level social work students and undergraduate nursing students from Wichita State University is described, with potential implications for practice and education.
