Medical, nursing, and public health educators encounter challenges to providing interprofessional learning experiences for their students. Faculty members have expressed a need for off-the-shelf, interprofessional teaching materials to integrate into classroom instruction or assign as self-paced learning.

Navigating a Foodborne Outbreak: Preparation for Interprofessional Practice is a free, self-paced, interactive, online module that demonstrates the importance of interprofessional practice among health professionals to improve and protect population health.

The module includes a pre-module assessment, case scenario videos, supporting resources that can be saved to a personal library, a post-module assessment, and a Certificate of Completion. The module specifically targets medical, nursing (baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral level), and public health (baccalaureate and master’s level) students, and may also be relevant to other health professionals at various stages of their training.

Upon completion, learners will be able to “describe how professionals in health and other fields can collaborate and integrate clinical care and public health interventions to optimize population health” (Interprofessional Education Collaborative Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice, Competency RR-10). Three sub-competencies and 28 learning objectives frame the module content.



Funding for this module was made possible by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (cooperative agreement numbers NU36OE000004, NU36OE000002, NU36OE000003, NU36OE000005), Centers for Surveillance, Epidemiology and Laboratory Services.
