The Twitter Chat is a great way for everyone to share ideas and experiences, it’s not just for students.
Academics, service users & carers, practitioners and researchers. We want you all to join in and share.
Please join us for the next chat on Thursday 29th November 2019, 7 pm – 8 pm.
This month the topic will be:
“VALUES BASED IPE AND INTERPROFESSIONAL PRACTICE”
Use #CAIPEchat and #CAIPEstudents
This month we will discuss values-based IPE and interprofessional practice
Join us to share your own experiences, ideas and views of how values are or should be embedded in IPE and our interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP).
There is currently an emerging focus on the role of values in ethical and effective person-centred health and social care. The word “values” has been in the social care vocabulary for some time but is perhaps newer for health professionals.
The Collaborating Centre for Values-Based Practice in Health and Social Care has led the field by promoting an explicit understanding of Values-Based Practice (VBP). VBP is defined as balanced decision-making within frameworks of shared values and based on respect for differences. Two key concepts are helpful. First is the “two feet principle” – the balance between clinical judgements based on evidence and the patient or service user’s personal values and priorities. Second is the “squeaky wheel principle” -values may only be considered when dissent emerges in the patient-clinician relationship1.
When we consider IPCP the situation becomes much more complex. At a recent workshop exploring VBP and IPE participants described occasions when there was misunderstanding, misalignment or even a clash between the values of different professions. Thus, instead of the “two feet principle” professionals and their patients may have to negotiate decisions based on a “many feet principle”. Further complexities arise when we work with families whose members hold different values.
Join us to discuss your own understanding and experience of VBP in an interprofessional context.
