In this study, we report the effectiveness of an interprofessional patient safety education in impacting student knowledge, attitudes and self-confidence around interprofessional communication. Thirty third-year students took part in a six weeks education that included a 90 minutes lecture and group discussion. Self-administered questionnaire were used for examining knowledge, attitudes, self-confidence and interviewed about team communication. There was no change in the knowledge(p=>0.05) but the attitude and self-confidence improved significantly after the education(p=<0.05). Students also noted that the importance of collaboration with other occupational groups. The first implementation of the interprofessional patient safety education had a positive effect on student attitudes, self-confidence and interprofessional teamwork.
