    ABSTRACT: Abstract The complexity of implementing interprofessional education and practice (IPEP) strategies that extend across the learning continuum requires that institutions create a structure to support effective and organized coordination among interested administrators, faculty and staff. The University of Virginia Center for Academic Strategic Partnerships for Interprofessional Research and Education (UVA Center for ASPIRE) was formally established in 2013 following five years of dramatic growth in interprofessional education at the School of Nursing, School of Medicine and the UVA Health System. This guide briefly describes the steps that led to the creation of the Center and the key lessons learned that can guide other institutions toward establishing their own IPE centers.

    ABSTRACT: Many academic settings offer interprofessional education (IPE) experiences that are of short duration and situated in safe, controlled environments such as classrooms or simulation labs. The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a 10-week IPE strategy that was incorporated into the final clinical practicum of a BScN program. A mixed methods design was chosen, in the belief that qualitative data would help explain quantitative data from pre-test/post-test design (n = 268). Quantitative results revealed that participants disagreed more with statements on interprofessional collaboration (IPC) after completion of the strategy (p = 0.00). Qualitative findings reinforced these results, revealing a theme of common sense is not so common when it comes to IPC in the health-care setting. When student nurses are being prepared for IPC, IPE strategies should be as “real” as possible, with exposure to some of the realities of interprofessional team functioning. French De nombreux milieux universitaires proposent des expériences de formation interprofessionnelle (EPC) de courte durée qui se déroulent dans un cadre sûr et contrôlé comme une salle de classe ou un laboratoire de simulation. Notre étude avait pour but d'analyser les effets d'une stratégie de 10 semaines intégrée au stage clinique final d'un programme de baccalauréat en sciences infirmières. Nous avons eu recours à des méthodes mixtes, estimant que les données qualitatives nous aideraient à expliquer les données quantitatives recueillies pendant l'étude prétest/post-test (n = 268). Les résultats quantitatifs révèlent un désaccord plus grand des participantes avec les énoncés sur la formation interprofessionnelle une fois la stratégie terminée (p =0.00). Les résultats qualitatifs appuient ce constat, ce qui laisse entrevoir que le sens commun n'est pas aussi commun qu'on le croit quand on parle d'EPC dans un milieu de soins. Il importe donc de faire en sorte que les stratégies s'adressant aux élèves-infirmières en matière d'EPC collent le plus possible avec la « réalité » et les exposent notamment à certains aspects du fonctionnement des équipes interprofessionnelles.
