Interprofessional Education in Athletic Training

Third Year PT students and 2nd year AT students came together for an interprofessional education (IPE) exercise centered on concussion (mTBI) management and vestibular ocular therapy. The students learned about each professions roles in treating a concussed patient. The collaboration culminated in a case study in which students worked together to develop a plan of care for the patient. Students from both professions reported that learning together with students from the other discipline improved their understanding of how to best care for the patient as a team.
