The University of Saskatchewan’s (U of S) Provost’s Prize for Innovative Practice in Collaborative Teaching and Learningis awarded to a department, non-departmentalized college or interdisciplinary team for group innovation in teaching and learning. We are proud to announce College of Nursing’s Dr. Hope Bilinski, along with an interdisciplinary team from the School of Physical Therapy, the College of Pharmacy and Nutrition and the College of Medicine, have been named as the recipients of this award for 2016.
Working alongside Arlis McQuarrie, Yvonne Shevchuk and Tom Smith Windsor, Bilinski and team submitted an application for their project entitled, Rural Partnerships for Interprofessional Clinical Experiences. “The complex health issues that we see today require health care teams to work collaboratively and in a manner that has the patient, their family and the community at the center of their care,” said Bilinski. “We are always looking for opportunities where our health sciences students can learn about, with and from each other and rural communities have played a major role in helping us do so.”
