This Standardized Interdisciplinary Team Meeting scenario was developed as part of a multi-station, standardized patient assessment. The student’s performance is measured by checklists filled out by the standardized team members and by the evaluation of responses to written questions on the interstation exercise. It is designed to be the second of two consecutive stations used to assess interdisciplinary team skills. The case materials for the first station (Ted Lee) are described separately. In this station the student must meet with Leslie Mitchell, Medical Social Worker and Jamie Jones, RN for an interdisciplinary team meeting. The social worker believes that the best disposition is for the patient to be sent to an SNF Rehabilitation Unit for further physical and occupational therapy. The nurse believes that Mr. Lee will refuse to go to an SNF facility because he perceives it to be a nursing home and recommends that the patient be kept in the hospital until he is strong enough to go home with home care physical therapy. The student’s task is to help the team create a discharge plan for Mr. Lee.
