Speech-language pathologists often collaborate with professionals of many different disciplines within the health care and educational field which is considered interprofessional practice. Interprofessional education is two or more disciplines learning together effectively to achieve a set goal of providing patients with the highest quality care. The purpose of this study was to examine the similarities and differences between students in Physical Therapy Occupational Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology fields while collaborating in an interdisciplinary simulated evaluation of a stroke patient. Graduate student participants completed a self-efficacy survey before and after the simulated evaluation to identify changes related to their confidence in implementing interprofessional services. Additionally, students completed a reflection related to the experience. Quantitative analysis of survey data and qualitative analysis of student reflections will be shared. Student reflections have indicated a positive experience of the simulated evaluation across disciplines. Student perceptions related to collaboration and common themes across multiple disciplines in both the survey and reflections will be presented.
