Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (SPAIN)
The Medical and Health Sciences Faculty of the Universitat Internacional de Catalunya, in the process of adaptation and implementation to the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), has developed a model of educational innovation in the context of clinical simulation.
The WHO (World Health Organization) in its report about multiprofessional education of health sciences staff (1988) regarding team-work criteria suggests that students of health sciences disciplines that share their learning, will work more effectively in teams.

The first experience was a clinical simulation-based practice education carried out jointly with third year students of medicine and nursing degrees, which involved a total of 150 students (80 medical and 70 nursing), in small groups of 20 students (10 from each degree).
Starting from a patient with respiratory disease, some different scenarios were worked out, based on audio-visual material and using of high fidelity simulators model “Laerdal SimMan”.

The main objectives of the practical were:
• To change attitudes and stereotypical thoughts.
• To identify gaps in communication between professionals.
• To promote teamwork skills.
• To develop a model of comprehensive patient care.

Expected learning outcomes:
• Understanding of roles. Expectations and boundaries of other health professions.
• To analyze and identify the key aspects that facilitate effective interprofessional work.

In conclusion, we found that our students are able to identify in the audiovisual material, positive and negative aspects that promote or interfere in team work, but are not able of carry them out in the simulated scenario. Even so, the students expressed a high level of satisfaction.

We consider that it is necessary to encourage this learning methodology, working medical and nursing students, together, and to promote its implementation throughout the academic curriculum of health sciences students.
