This quasi-experimental research with a one-group pretest-posttest design was aimed at investigating the effects of interprofessional education (IPE) on the topic of health promotion in pregnant women on interprofessional collaborative competency attainment. The samples were 56 nursing students in the Bachelor of Nursing Program, Boromarajonani College of Nursing and Thai traditional medicine students at Sirindhorn College of Public Health, Chonburi. The instruments in this study were the interprofessional education manual that was validated by an expert and the Multidisciplinary Collaboration Competency Survey (ICCAS), which was tested for the Cronbach’s alpha reliability coefficient, equaled to .90. Data were analyzed by frequency, percent, mean, standard deviation and dependent t-test.
The result revealed that the posttest performance scores of multidisciplinary collaboration among nurse students of Boromarajonani College of Nursing and students of Thai traditional medicine at Sirindhorn College of Public Health, Chonburi were higher than the pretest performance scores with the statistical significance at the level of .01.
