Growing Beyond Your Discipline: Interprofessional Education for Healthcare Professionals

When: June 11, 2021, 9:00 am - Friday

Where: Swang 110

Session 6

Session Abstract

Today’s healthcare professionals are highly trained in their specific disciplines. However, how well do they know the roles of those around them? More importantly, how can knowing those roles and strengths enable students to provide high quality healthcare in team-based settings? This session will explore examples of interprofessional education among health professions students at Lipscomb University in collaboration with some neighboring institutions.

 

Paper Abstracts

Abbie Burka and Melanie Morris, Lipscomb University, “Interprofessional Grand Rounds: Exploring the Interface of Healthcare Professionals”

Interprofessional Grand Rounds is a unique team-based collaborative learning experience between students from dietetics, kinesiology, pharmacy, nursing, pharmacy, and physician assistant programs in Lipscomb University’s College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Students meet in small groups where they explore the intersection of mental and physical health through case-based problem-solving activities using a fictionalized patient. Integration of Behavior Health knowledge is performed in collaboration with students and faculty in the Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. This program will feature faculty sharing the rewards and challenges of working across departments, colleges, and universities to provide impactful interprofessional educational experiences.

 

 

Allison D. Provine, Lipscomb University, “Vanderbilt Program in Interprofessional Learning: Uniting Students for Positive Outcomes”

The Vanderbilt Program in Interprofessional Learning (VPIL) is a longitudinal, clinic-based interprofessional education partnership between Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy, Vanderbilt University Schools of Medicine and Nursing, and the University of Tennessee College of Social Work. VPIL embeds teams of first- and second-year pharmacy, medical, advanced practice nursing, and social work students in clinical settings over a two-year period. Students attend clinic one half-day per week and also participate in seminars/simulations. The goals of VPIL are to cultivate respectful professionals, nurture self-directed workplace learners, prepare leaders who contribute to a collaborative, practice-ready workforce, and improve the health care delivery system.
