Welcome to the Teaching Today’s Students for Tomorrow’s America (TTSTA) Project Clinical Learning Module:
REFUGEE CULTURE AND HEALTH
Background The training for health care professionals (HCPs) falls short in preparing students to work interprofessionally to provide culturally competent care to refugee populations. Despite health accreditation rapidly expanding to include interprofessional education (IPE), aligning academic calendars across institutions for interprofessional collaborative trainings is challenging. In the TTSTA project, two academic health institutions collaborated in 2016-2017 to develop, implement and evaluate an asynchronous, online clinical learning module to prepare current and future HCPs to meet the unique and complex health needs of immigrants and refugees.
The Module The interactive training slides can be completed in about 45 minutes. Further time can be spent exploring its multiple resource links or in interprofessional discussions about the content. Two Reflection Questions are included at the end of the slides for discussion. In addition, there is a “Resources” link in the menu bar above with more links to information that supports the training.
Thank you for your interest in our interprofessional collaborative practice education efforts,
