In Indonesia Interprofessional education (IPE) is a very challenging
issue. The complexity of the daily tasks, imbalance of ‘students’ proportion, back�ground variability of the students and facilitators and various locations of the facul�ties may operate as obstacles to IPE activities and need to be evaluated. This study
aimed to determine the effectiveness of the IPE program, which was implemented
in the third year of pharmacy, public health and medical students. As many as 460
students from three faculties were encouraged to this program. General lecture
from the teacher of three faculties, two times of student focus group discussions
(FGD) and a classical presentation were conducted to evaluate the IPE program
using the questionnaire as the instrument. The questionnaire contained the domains
of communication, collaboration, role-responsibility, problem-solving approach,
conflict management and team empowerment. A lecturer facilitated a group of
about ten students for two times FGD. The outcomes were posters with various
topics in each group. In total, 460 students participated in this program. The pro�portion of pharmacy, public health and medical students was 41.3, 47.8 and 10.9%,
respectively. Overall, the score of all domains was improved at the end of the pro�grams, with communication, role-responsibility and problem-solving approach
showing the most improvements. At the end of the programs, all domains show
significant improvement, except for conflict management in the pharmacy faculty.
Only communication and role-responsibility domains considerably improved in
the public health faculty. In contrast, there were no appreciable variances and all
domains show a decrease in value in the medical faculty. Our study shows the
effectiveness of IPE programs for third-year students in the pharmacy and public
health. However, the IPE programs should be more promoted in the third-year of
medical faculty because the students are almost at the end of their study period.
To the best of authors’ knowledge, this study, which is involved pharmacy, public
health and medical students, is the first conducted in Indonesia among third-year
students and to include a wide range of measuring domains.
