Anxiety is a condition with multiple physical manifestations and sequelae, including negatively impacting learning. The prevalence of anxiety and the factors that predict it in health professions students are unknown. The current study assessed the prevalence of anxiety in DPT students and examined the predictors of anxiety. The findings showed high student anxiety levels that were analogous to military recruits. Female gender and low GPA were predictors of anxiety in the sample. Further research is necessary to determine other factors that contribute to anxiety so that interventions to reduce anxiety in health professions students can be initiated...

Organizations recommend interprofessional education (IPE) as a means of promoting collaborative patient-centered care. In turn, various external accreditors in the health professions have integrated IPE competencies into their standards. However, little is known about how athletic training (AT) and nutrition and dietetics (ND) have incorporated IPE into their educational programs. This study examined institutional factors that affect the level of IPE participation within ND and AT programs in the United States...

EDITORIAL
Thomas W Elwood
An implicit assumption of considerable importance is that manuscripts published in professional journals should reflect integrity on the part of authors, peer reviewers, and publishers. Unfortunately, some evidence continues to emerge that calls into question a view that all responsible parties are willing to play by the rules.

The amount of guidance supplied by educators to students in allied health programs is a factor in student learning. According to the cognitive load theory of learning, without adequate instructional support, novice learners will be overwhelmed and unable to store information, while unnecessary guidance supplied to advanced students will cause extraneous cognitive load on the working memory system. Adjusting instructional guidance for students according to their level of expertise to minimize extraneous cognitive load and optimize working memory storage capacity will enhance learning effectiveness...

Sophisticated high-fidelity human simulation (HFHS) manikins allow for practice of both evaluation and treatment techniques in a controlled environment in which real patients are not put at risk. However, due to high demand, access to HFHS by students has been very competitive and limited. In the present study, a basic CPR manikin with a speaker implanted in the chest cavity and internet access to a variety of heart and breath sounds was used. Students were evaluated on their ability to locate and identify auscultation sites and heart/breath sounds...

First-year Canadian occupational therapy students (n=27) rated their knowledge of and cultural/emotional responses to cultural safety and Indigenous health prior to and following an educational intervention led by a trained Indigenous educator. At post-intervention, students were also asked to comment on their learning experience. Pilot data of 40% of the class were analyzed using nonparametric approaches proposed by Koller and colleagues; qualitative data were explored using conventional methods. The majority of participant ratings reflected a perceived increase in knowledge and cultural/emotional responses, indicative of positive change following intervention...

REVIEW
Scott Reeves, Janice Palaganas, Brenda Zierler
With continued growth and investment in interprofessional education (IPE) activities, there is a persistent need to understand the effect of IPE on learning, organizations, systems, and patients. This paper presents an update of a previously published synthesis of reviews. In doing so, it provides a critical appraisal of the most recent evidence for the IPE review literature. Following a search of the literature, eight IPE reviews were identified. Findings from this synthesis indicate continued methodological weaknesses, similarities in the methodological approaches to the reviews, and a focus on short-term impact with a lack of attention on long-term impact...
