Ryerson: IPE Matters Series - Understanding and managing conflict in interprofessional life

May 30

Please note that this IPE elective is a grad level activity only open to students in the following programs: MSW, MD, PT, OT, Pharmacy and Public Health.

Interprofessional education (IPE) assumes that collaboration across professional boundaries can improve client care. The effectiveness of this collaboration depends in some part upon how well team members can understand, manage and resolve conflict effectively. Without effective collaboration and resolution of conflicts, team functioning can be threatened.

In this workshop, participants can expect to explore different modes of behavior in situations of conflict, and understand how each mode plays a role in achieving a resolution (or not).

The objectives of the workshop are:

  • Understand different modes of handling conflict
  • Identify the mode that relates to you; and how you can adapt to increase your contribution to resolution
  • Arrive at a place where you can choose how to act, rather than react

To Register: RSVP to Sanne Kaas-Mason at skaasmason@ryerson.ca


Cancer Trainee Professional Enrichment Program (CT-PEP) - Summer Student Learning Series

June 7

Join other summer students to build research and professional skills and network with other students and experts in various cancer-related fields, associated services and programs.

This program aims to equip the future generation of cancer care professionals by providing students early in their careers with an intensive exposure to important topics in cancer care. Summer students in the cancer program have the opportunity to learn about and discuss diverse topics not typically covered in their placements.

The series includes:

  • Access to the online learning platform Cancer Campus (this is used to register for seminars, participate on a discussion forum and access resources available within the series including the Careers in Oncology Nano Video Series)
  • 10 interactive live seminars at the ELLICSR Centre (TGH) and 2 online sessions
  • An invitation to present a Ted-Style Talk at the end of the summer and compete to win 1 of 2 Awards for Best Ted-Style Talk
  • An invitation the series Celebration and Research day

The Summer Student Learning Series consists of 10 live sessions, plus an optional research presentation and a wrap-up networking mixer, offered in concert with supporting online learning opportunities. The majority of the learning content is accessible to the learner on Cancer Campus, with the scheduled sessions serving as the core means to explore the topic with a subject matter expert and peers within the cancer program community.

This set of sessions is a coordinated suite of offerings, with each session building upon and informing the next. The summer series is an approved longitudinal IPE learning activity, recognized as 2 Exposure Level activities, for the University of Toronto IPE program. For learners attending at least 8 of the 12 educational sessions over the course of the summer, a certificate of completion for the Summer Student Learning Series will be awarded.

All sessions will be held between 12:30pm and 1:30pm in ELLICSR CoP with the exceptions of June 28th (location: ELLICSR Kitchen) and August 21st (location: 7th floor atrium at Princess Margaret).
