Description

This presentation describes the processes behind and results emanating from a scoping review of interprofessional online learning for primary healthcare teams. Guided by the research questions (i): what is the nature of evidence on team-based online postgraduate education for primary health care (interprofessional) teams? and (ii) what methods of online, team based learning if identified work – i.e. improve learning outcomes? the review was primarily undertaken via an electronic database search. Utilising MEDLINE, the Cumulative Index of Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Pubmed, Scopus, Web of Science and the British Education Index (BEI), in addition to journal hand searches and an exploration of grey literature, the review sought to generate insight from a diverse range of both published and unpublished sources. All materials generated from the searches were independently screened to ascertain their relevance to the questions. Studies selected for the next phase of analysis were then abstracted using a descriptive and numerical system alongside predetermined qualitative criteria. The approach enabled a response to the research questions which benefitted from both the rigor of an extensive search strategy and an informed interpretation of the nature of research in the field of team-based e-learning in primary care. It is anticipated that a considered interrogation of the results will allow research communities to review and analyze the research evidence in this field, summarize the range of evidence in order to convey its depth and breadth, identify important gaps in knowledge and disseminate the findings to provide a framework for the practical application of a team based approach. The presentation will outline the key results from the scoping review, provoking a discussion which surrounds the development and trajectory of the field and the implications for interprofessional online education, practice, research and policy.
