ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES

The Interprofessional and Simulation-Based Learning Advisory Committee provides advice to the Dean (Learning & Teaching), the Program Lead and the Interprofessional and Simulation-Based Learning Team in relation to the ongoing development and implementation of interprofessional and simulation-based learning activities across the Griffith University Health Group.

The Committee's work will be guided by the following key definitions:

Interprofessional education occurs when two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to improve collaboration and the quality of care

(Centre for the Advancement of Interprofessional Education, 2002)

Simulation is a technique—not a technology—to replace or amplify real experiences with guided experiences that evoke or replicate substantial aspects of the real world in a fully interactive manner.

(David Gaba, 2004)

Functions of the Committee

  1. Assist the Interprofessional and Simulation-Based Learning Team to ensure that all graduates of Griffith Health professional programs meet the Group’s Threshold Learning Outcomes for Collaborative Interprofessional Practice
  2. Assist the Interprofessional and Simulation-Based Learning Team to ensure that all interprofessional and simulation-based learning activities undertaken in Health Group programs are pedagogically sound and supported by the best available scholarly evidence
  3. Support the further development of scholarship in the areas of interprofessional and simulation-based learning at Griffith University
  4. Provide a forum for the exchange of information, ideas and innovations in the areas of interprofessional and simulation-based learning across the Health Group and more widely in the University
  5. Provide advice in relation to strategic priorities for the Health Group in the areas of interprofessional and simulation-based learning
  6. Provide advice on, and support the development of, sound policy and practice in relation to interprofessional and simulation-based learning at Griffith University.

Meetings

The Advisory Committee will usually meet 5-6 times per year.  However, the Chair may call meetings more frequently if required. The Committee will operate on a consensus model for decision-making.  Members may be represented for any particular meeting by a proxy.  A quorum is considered to be 50% plus one of formally nominated representatives or their proxies.  Rather than formal minutes, a simple record of agreements and action items will be made by the Minutes Secretary, verified by the Chair and distributed to members as soon as practicable after each meeting.

Membership

The membership of the Advisory Committee includes the core Interprofessional and Simulation-Based Learning Team from Health IDEAS and at least one representative from each School in the Health Group, nominated by the relevant Deputy Head of School (Learning & Teaching), as well as a representative from Learning Futures and a student representative. Key academic and professional staff from across the University, as well as from health service partners, whose work includes a focus on interprofessional or simulation-based learning, may be invited to join the committee by its chair.
