Abstract: The Health Promotion Hub at George Brown College provides an interprofessional student experience focused on learning the practice of health promotion while engaging in, and learning about interprofessional collaborative practice. The Hub was invited to develop and implement a series of targeted health promotion programs for the residents and staff of a local retirement home. We leveraged this opportunity to observe and evaluate this initiative as an effective interprofessional learning experience for students. An interprofessional team of students developed and implemented health promotion workshops on topics of particular relevance to the residents and staff, and conducted research related to the social determinants of health. Data was gathered about the impact of the students’ work and about their collaborative health promotion experience. The mixed-method approach included pre- and post-program questionnaires (IEPS and IAQ) for students and mid- and post-program interviews/focus groups involving the students, faculty and Annex staff. Qualitative data was analyzed using an inductive thematic approach in which emergent themes were re-categorized on the basis of Presage, Process, and Product (P3) factors.
