The Haunted House Experience: Developing a Home Health Assessment Training Utilizing an Interprofessional, Interinstitutional Virtual Simulation

J Allied Health. 2022 Summer;51(2):e65-e69.


To meet the interprofessional education needs of students during the COVID-19 pandemic, universities transitioned to virtual options. For many universities, this transition was challenging and time-consuming. The Arkansas Interprofessional Education Consortium (ARIPEC) combined resources to create a novel learning experience for students with a focus on the skill of home assessment. An interinstitutional, interprofessional faculty project team was developed to create a learning experience, with each institution responsible for a portion of the virtual simulation development. This paper describes the process for creation and implementation of an interprofessional, interinstitutional virtual learning experience to support the growth of healthcare students across the state of Arkansas.
