Abstract

Interprofessional education (IPE) occurs when two or more professions learn with, about and from each other to improve collaboration and quality of health care. Before implementation of IPE, a study was done to evaluate the readiness of healthcare lecturers on IPE. Perceptions were evaluated among lecturers of four different faculties; Faculty of Medicine, Faculty of Dentistry, Faculty of Pharmacy and Faculty of Health Sciences. A total of 261 set of questionnaires were distributed with a returned of only 148 sets giving a response of 57%. One-way Anova was used to compare the perception of lecturers among the four faculties giving a significant difference for skills and knowledge (F3, 144 = 4.91, p <0.05), professional identity (F3, 144 = 8.41, p <0.01), collaboration and team work (F3, 144 = 5.04, p <0.05) subscales. Post-hoc comparison using Tukey’s test showed a higher mean score for Faculty of Medicine as to Faculty of Health Sciences for all three of the subscales. As for willingness in performing IPL and methods of conducting IPL, there was no significant difference (p > 0.05) in all the subscales. Independent T-test was performed in evaluating the academic year suitable for implementation of IPL and the result showed a higher mean score for later years (μ = 3.51±1.10) as to earlier years (μ = 3.07±1.13) of education. In conclusion, healthcare lecturers had a positive perception and showed readiness in implementing IPE based on the average mean scale obtained that was greater than 3.0.
