Faculty Guides (Available to Confirmed Faculty Only)

Communication is a core aspect of interprofessional collaborative practice, and a skill that all of us in medicine and the health professions must cultivate to produce improved integrated care.

This module will focus on six core interprofessional communication competencies developed by national health professions organizations and illustrated in the case of Mrs. Bernard.

Your task today is to become familiar with the competencies and begin to put them into practice as you continue your training.






Notice ⚠️


Web-GEMs will no longer be available via POGOe after August 31, 2017. The web-GEMS modules will be moved to Med-U and are now available via subscription

If your institution created web-GEMs assignments before September, 2016, you are “grandfathered” into web-GEMs on Med-U and your institution will have one year free access to web-GEMs through June, 2018. MedU has already notified users who are ‘grandfathered’ about the process and has sent information on initiating your free access to the course through their new learning management system. If your institution is grandfathered and you haven't already done so, please complete the MedU onboarding form here so you can begin the process of onboarding onto the MedU platform.

If you have not received notification that you are will have free access for the 2017-18 subscription year and would like a quote to purchase a license for access to web-GEMs starting in July, please contact MedU Subscriptions for a quote. If you have any questions about this transition please reach out to Elvy Ickowicz at AGS. If you are currently using web-GEMs modules, you and your trainees will have until August 31, 2017 to complete the module via POGOe at no cost.
