ABSTRACT: Interprofessional Podiatric Surgical Simulation A Pilot Study.

BACKGROUND:
Interprofessional collaboration is key to quality outcomes in the health-care systems of today. Simulation is a common tool in podiatric medical education, and interprofessional education has become more common in podiatric medicine programs. Interprofessional simulation is the blending of these educational strategies.
METHODS:
A quantitative design was used to determine the impact of an isolated interprofessional podiatric surgical simulation between nurse anesthesia and podiatric medical students.
RESULTS:
Statistically significant differences were observed among participants between preintervention and postintervention surveys using the revised Interdisciplinary Education Perception Scale.
CONCLUSIONS:
Interprofessional simulation can be an effective educational opportunity for podiatric medical and nurse anesthesia students.
