This paper provides a general overview of an upcoming
evaluation plan with JCIPE that began this fall. This plan was
constructed primarily because although numerous training
institutions have constructed and implemented various courses
and programs designed to provide students with extensive
learning opportunities steeped in interprofessional education
(IPE)1-3, projects employing longitudinal and/or mixed-methods
approaches to understanding the multi-faceted barriers to and
facilitators of IPE within health professions training have been
quite limited. Similarly, few evaluation plans have attempted to
unearth if and how students are exposed to interprofessional
values outside of IPE-specific programs or how these team-based
values may translate to students’ later professional practice.
