Interprofessional education (IPE) is a growing topic in health science education. There are a number of IPE research concerns including; ideal instructional topics, faculty development, and logistic concerns. In order to explore these concerns in a practical manner, 4 years, 2011-2014, university based IPE event centering on healthcare error disclosure has been evaluated. The event consists of 2 components, lecture and team practice, was attended by medical, nursing, pharmacy, dentistry, and physician assistant students and was evaluated with an event specific measurement tool with a satisfaction survey and open-ended questions. Descriptive and regression results highlight that this error disclosure educational event is satisfactory to students and maybe a robust topic due to its ability to satisfy across professions and small group assignment. Directed content analysis was used to evaluate the qualitative data. This analysis suggested that not only did the topic of error disclosure satisfy students it also might work as a vector to teach IPE skills. In conclusion, as IPE needs grow more educational events need to be created and evaluated. This university based error disclosure program presents one event that shows promise as a valuable IPE tool.
