Abstract: Background: As a fast-changing healthcare system demands for innovations and management in complex health conditions, it is essential to prepare undergraduates with interprofessional practice skills and knowledge enabling undergraduates to be “collaborative practice-ready” in providing quality care. In the education setting, nursing undergraduates and medical undergraduates are usually educated separately, hence opportunities for collaborative partnership are limited. With minimal collaboration opportunities available, when undergraduates enter the workforce, conflicts may arise. Through IPE the undergraduates are able to gain real world practical experiences and insights in a simulated environment. Aims: This study aims to examine nursing students’ perceptions towards conflicts management and rapport building in interprofessional collaboration. Methods: 150 third-year nursing students were invited to participate in the IPE activity on conflict management and rapport building. During the facilitated IPE activity, students were required to role-play and demonstrate how to manage conflicting issues with the given case scenarios. Student perceptions towards interprofessional collaboration was measured by modified IPE pre-test and post-test questionnaires which were administered prior to the commencement of IPE and at the end of IPE activity respectively. Results: Overall, majority of the nursing students had positive perceptions towards interprofessional collaboration at baseline. After undergoing the IPE activity, majority of the nursing students’ responses indicated that their perception toward interprofessional collaboration in relation to conflict management and rapport building have differed. Conclusion: After undergoing the IPE activity on conflict management and rapport building, the nursing students’ perceptions towards interprofessional collaboration at post-test result differ from pre-test result. A warrant for follow-up in qualitative ix studies could be conducted to gain in-depth insight on nursing students’ knowledge, perceptions and skills in interprofessional collaboration.
