This workshop is based on: “Health Hack: Health Technology Team Challenge”, a student-led interprofessional minicourse on designing technology for learners in various health professions. The objectives of this session are to 1) introduce learners to their role in designing assistive technologies based on the Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative’s (CIHC) framework, 2) provide learners with tools from design thinking which encourage entrepreneurial and person-centred thinking, and 3) expose learners to addressing emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and virtual/augmented reality. This session will review key learning activities and resources for fostering interprofessional collaboration amongst students.
