The project aimed to:

  1. Scope the approaches currently used to teach and assess practices relevant to medication safety in Australia; and examine the needs of nursing, pharmacy and medical programs in relation to the integration of IPE and medication safety into curricula (Stage 1: cross-sectional survey).
  2. Develop and implement a range of multimedia teaching and learning resources that engage students with interactive and authentic 'patient journeys' and enhance students' interprofessional communication skills related to medication practices (Stage 2).
  3. Examine the impact of the teaching and learning resources developed on students’ communication skills, knowledge, application of and satisfaction with the learning experience (Stage 3: quasi-experimental study).
