Abstract/Description: Since its inception in 2016 the interprofessional attitudes scale (IPAS) has attempted to further analysis into perceptions that pre-licensure health professions students have toward interprofessional education (IPE) and collaboration as laid out by the Center for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education (CAIPE). The purpose of this study was to expand upon and add to the growing body of literature surrounding IPAS and the readiness for interprofessional learning scale (RIPLS) in an attempt to determine student attitudes and readiness towards IPE and interprofessional collaboration as it relates to the care of older adults. The study will use a pretest posttest design to determine the effect of an intervention designed to facilitate skill in the care of older adults in a geriatric care setting. This project integrates social work, nursing and medical students in the care of older adults using a series of learning modules offered online through a learning management system. This is followed by an interprofessional-learning event wherein students in interprofessional teams engage in the assessment of a model patient. Of the 27 students who completed both the pretest and posttest assessments there was found to be no statistical significance between highly rated pretest and posttest composite score for the RIPLS and the IPAS. Despite this finding, the IPAS found statistically significant scores that suggest that the intervention had a positive influence on pre-licensure students’ reflections on teamwork and the role of shared learning on an effective health care team. This study found that students of nursing, medicine, and social work share a readiness and positive attitude towards interprofessional teamwork, education, and collaboration.
