Abstract: 

This session will provide health professions students the opportunity to become immersed in a realistic interrprofessional (IP) care planning activity for an older adult.  The primary purpose of this session is to provide a health care specific experiential learning opportunity through which students may better understand the challenges of and develop skills for working with an interprofessional health care team.  The secondary purpose of the session is to provide an opportunity for students to better understand the roles of different health care professions early in their career.

Educational objectives: 

During this small group activity, student participants will:

1. Develop an interprofessional care plan by integrating their own discipline's plan with that of students from other professions.

2. Identify three types of professional competencies: (1) complementary individual professional competencies that are unique to a profession; (2) common clinical competencies that are held by more than one profession; and (3) interprofessional collaborative competencies such as team skills, communication skills, and an understanding of roles and responsibilities.

3. Use the SBAR tool to structure interprofessional communication and communicate essential information to team members about a patient.

4. Improve their orientation toward interprofessional team-based care as compared to multidisciplinary care.
