Objective

There is paucity of evidence for interprofessional education (IPE) conducted within the working environment of emergency departments (EDs). This study demonstrates favorable perception of on-floor IPE sessions conducted in a busy emergency department.


Materials and Methods

Between January and December 2020, IPE was conducted in EDs using low fidelity manikins and involved nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists, and medical students already present on floor. The three key areas were, taught cardiac arrest, escalating oxygen therapy for COVID-19 patients, and procedural sedation. Each session lasted 30 min, and feedback was obtained immediately after the session in both transcribed and written forms through scannable survey monkey links.


Results

Forty-seven sessions were conducted covering the three topics for 141 participants. The majority of the participants benefited from on-floor IPE and preferred this approach in the future. Both participant and faculty recommended to have some protected time to maximize the learnings.


Conclusion

IPE in the clinical environment is feasible, with careful planning it can enhance collaborative learning in the ED.
