Description
It is important that inter-professional team work is established as the cooperation and collaboration of members in order to provide high-quality care. The purpose of this research was to describe the changes in the awareness of students in nursing science and radiological science regarding their clinical practice activities of body positioning and transfer care through interprofessional education. In 2015, first grade nursing students and third grade radiological students in a local university jointly practiced changing body positions and transfer care of patients. They answered a fourteen-item questionnaire about inter-professional education before and after the changing activities. This research was approved by the Clinical Research Ethics Review Committee of the Tokushima University Hospital. Of the 105 questionnaire copies distributed, 102 copies were returned but only 89 copies were complete with no missing values and were analyzed using the paired t-test statistic. Inter-professional education provided the following effects : understanding of the ethics of other professions, understanding rational behavior of other occupations, usefulness of educational conference, the necessity of trusting other occupations, understanding the need to work hard on their own jobs, understanding mutual and complementary work, awareness of incompetence, awareness of the importance of team approach, and the usefulness of multi-disciplinary cooperative practice. This study illuminated the necessity of providing opportunities for engagements among students of other professions through lectures and practice of skills using inter-professional education values prior to professional practice in the hospital.
