Supporting Clinical Preceptors with Interprofessional Orientation Sessions
Abstract:In 2007, the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) received approval and deliver common inter-professional preceptor orientation sessions at the request of health care preceptors in the province of Saskatchewan. The initiative was viewed as an effective and innovative strategy to support the goals of preceptor education and inter-professional patient-centred education of health care professionals. The aim was to provide inter-professional orientation sessions for preceptors with the expectation that they would relate collaborative learning to collaborative practice with students and clients. It was also anticipated that the student's experiences with preceptors would be positively informed by an understanding of interpersonal and inter-group processes of professional orientation sessions to a total of 80 preceptors with one session in Regina, Saskatchewan and one in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Each inter-professional session was approximately two-three hours in length and facilitated by two program faculty members from health care programs who had extensive experience in inter-professional education and development.
