Interdisciplinary healthcare teams will be considered in many educational opportunities.

- Live conferences, workshops, seminars, practice improvement interventions
- Enduring materials i.e., DVDs, web-based courses
- Additional methods will be implemented as new technologies become available.
Expected Results: A variety of tools will be used to assess changes in learner knowledge, competence, skills and/or performance. Audience response technology, pre- and post- testing, case studies, peer interaction, survey, evaluation, and question and answer sessions may be utilized during activities. Responses will determine changes in knowledge, skill, competence and/or performance of participants as well as any potential need for future educational opportunities.
