dc.description.abstract Background: Providing students and practitioners opportunities to learn from other disciplines in a supportive environment has the potential to improve patient outcomes and practitioner job satisfaction. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe an annual Interprofessional Education Event offered in a university setting and explore participant views regarding their competencies based on the Interprofessional Education Collaborative’s four core competency domains: Values/ethics for interprofessional practice, roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication, and teams and teamwork. Method: Twenty-six faculty and students participated in preparatory activities and served as table facilitators for a large case study event. After the session, twenty submitted survey responses reflecting on changes in their interprofessional competencies. Discussion: Table facilitators reported that their core competencies in all areas remained stable or improved as a result of their participation in the pre-planning stages and case study workshop. Participant comments indicated the importance of initiating interprofessional education during academic training and to continue it throughout an individual’s career. Future directions include pre-event competency assessments and longer-term follow-up with participants. en_US
