Health professions students' attitudes and perceptions of interprofessional biases.

Int J Pharm Pract; 2019 Mar 26.
Artículo en Inglés | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-30912600

OBJECTIVE:

The purpose of this study was to examine attitudes toward interprofessional, team-based care in first-year health professions students.

METHODS:

A cross-sectional questionnaire was administered to all first-year health professions students in their first semester at one university using the Interprofessional Attitudes Scale (IPAS). Kruskal-Wallis tests were used to analyze the data.

KEY FINDINGS:

Results indicated only two significant differences among students in IPAS subdomains: teamwork (χ  = 13.11, df = 3, P = 0.004) and patient-centredness (χ  = 40.75, df = 3, P < 0.0001).

CONCLUSIONS:

Not all health professions students come into their formal education with the same level of attitudes toward team-based care. Educators should consider this when designing IPE activities.
