Brought to you by Dr. Carole Orchard and the Interprofessional Health Education and Research (IPHER) team at Western University, Circles of Care is an innovative interprofessional education (IPE) game that helps learners gain skills in working within a collaborative interprofessional team. It is played by two to four teams of four to ten players each. The team will represent a range of health and social care professions.
The game contains twelve patient/client cases from a variety of practice areas and the teams can play as many cases as they wish. The cases are assigned at random and each team works through a case discussing questions about the patient, their environment and the possible interventions.
Cases involve as many as 13 different health providers: audiologist, child and youth worker, clinical psychologist, dietitian, early childhood educator, nurse, occupational therapist, personal support worker, physician, physiotherapist, pharmacist, social worker and speech language pathologist.
