Interprofessional role clarity is linked to improving team collaboration and clinical care, yet there are barriers to implementing interprofessional curricula targeted to learner achievement of this competency. A behavior change counseling skills workshop for first-year advanced practice nursing (APN) (n=153) and third-year pharmacy (PharmD) (n=127) students was modified to include learning experiences for enhancing interprofessional role clarity. Students rated the importance of each profession's contributions in nine patient care activities before and after the workshop. APN and PharmD students increased their ratings of the merit of each profession in counseling patients in several care activities. Findings suggest that providing interprofessional students an opportunity to learn core skills together can also foster an understanding of each other's professional roles and responsibilities.
