Courses & Learning
There is evidence that student engagement increases and interprofessional learning is enhanced when students have opportunities to both practice the skills that underpin interprofessional collaboration and to critically reflect on their interprofessional experiences in a supportive and structured way.
The development of the following interprofessional courses have been supported by RU IP and funded by the FCS Office of the Dean, the Office of the Provost and HealthForce Ontario.
DST 503 Inter/professional Narratives
This course will introduce students to the significance of narratives, storytelling and deep listening as part of inter/professional education and practice within health and community services contexts. Inter/professional Narratives will bring students and facilitators together to explore and critique stories as a way of knowing. Students will develop the capacity for storytelling and listening as a way to explore identity and social location to build inter/professional narratives and relationships in health and community service. Within this context, students will examine self in relation to others through stories in order to facilitate students’ preparedness for inter/professional practice.

MN8936 Advanced therapeutic communication: An inter-professional perspective
Conceptualization of advanced therapeutic communication with clients from an interprofessional perspective will be examined. The critical role of reflective processes necessary for collaborative therapeutic relationships, as well as the contextual factors that impact therapeutic communication, such as personal and cultural background, diversity and the role of the interprofessional team, will be considered. Students will also study evidence-based approaches to advanced therapeutic communication, i.e. Narrative Inquiry, Coaching and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
