Abstract: 

This six part progressive standardized patent serves re train medical students to care for an older adult with a life limiting condition, including making the diagnosis of multiple myeloma, breaking bad news, transitions of care from the hospital to home and curative care to palliation, through advance directiive discussions, and eventually into hospice and his death. The six encounters occur from Year 2 through Year 4 of the medical school curriculum , with a scripted five year span of patient care. Educational modalities include standandized patients, simulation, web-based modules, and small group discussions. 

Educational objectives: 

1) Provide medical care for an older adult with a life limiting condition from their diagnosis through their death

2) Understand the roles of the medical provider and other health care disciplines, as individual providers and as a team, in caring for an older adult with a life limiting diagnosis as they transition from the hospital to home and from curative care to palliation

3) Assist family caregivers in identifying caregiver responsibilities and potential caregiver burden

Abstract: 

This transitions of care Interprofessional education standardized patient serves to train Year 3 medical students and graduate students from physical, occupational and speech therapy in the transition of care of a frail older adult from the hospital to home. It is the third of a six part progressive standarized patient encounter on palliative care. This clinical simulation is an encounter with Barney as a hospitalized patient with newly acquired functional decline. Learners gain experience in the interprofessional team assessment of a hopsitalized older adult's functional status and the team management of that patient's transition of care from the hospital to home. Educational modalities include web-based instruction , the simulation, and a small group discussion of the interprofessional set of learners immediately following the encounter facilitated by interprofessional faculty.  

Educational objectives: 

1) Perform an interprofessional, comprehensive team assessment of a hospitalized older adult's functional assessment and the team mangement of that patient's transition of care from the hospital to home. 

2) Understand the role that individual discpliness play in conducting  a comprehesive assessment of an older adult's functinal status 

3) Assess specific risks and barriers to older adult safety as they transition from the hospital to home 

4) Assist family caregivers in identfying caregiver responsibilities and potential caregiver burden

Abstract: 
•Collaborative interprofessional practice and care are essential to the complex healthcare needs of a rapidly growing older adult population.
•Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) occurs when various health care practitioners, clients and/or caregivers work together to improve a client’s overall health.
•Teaching an IPC model continues to be a major gap in every health professionals’ education.
•To address this gap, the Geriatrics Interprofessional Teaching Clinic (GITC) at the University of Kansas Medical Center's Landon Center on Aging was created. It incorporates six professions: Students and faculty from  Physical Therapy, Medicine, Pharmacy, Social Welfare, Dietitics/Nutrition and Occupational Therapy.
•It is scheduled one half day a week with four patients scheduled on a "rolling" basis allowing for interprofessional teams of three to see patients in a staggered fashion. On average, each visit takes approximately 60-90 minutes.
•Logistically, students from 3 professions review the medical record together, discuss what they want to accomplish in the room, and how they will approach the patient encounter as a team. The students then see the patient and report back to the attending physician and other health professions faculty as a team. The assessment and plan for the patient is developed by the team.
•Team members are asked to define their roles by what the patient needs at that particular visit, starting with their own professional training and scope of practice, but then encouraged to allow themselves to participate in new ways. The interprofessional clinic faculty assist the learners by facilitating reflection on their clinical performance as individuals and as a team at the time of the clinic visit, incorporating their reflections into their next clinical encounter and through debriefing.
•To quantify interprofessional collaboration, evaluation tools are being piloted to assess for team dynamics, and surveys are sent out to each individual learner to assess for behavior and attitude changes. These are both done at the "beginning" and "end" of their GITC experience.
 
 
Educational objectives: 
•Create an interprofessional (IP) clinic involving multiple learners, emphasizing the national interprofessional competencies (values/ethics, roles/responsibilities, interprofessional communication and teams/teamwork).
•Train students in IP teams to evaluate their communication with the patient and with other team members following a patient encounter in GITC using a validated rubric. 
•Monitor changes in IP team behavior through individual learner evaluations.

Abstract: 

Case Overview: Ida Mae Homer is an 80 year-old woman with a 5-year history of Alzheimer’s disease.  Her granddaughter has been staying with her for the last 3 days while her daughter (her usual caregiver) is out of town.  Mrs. Homer is becoming increasingly confused and agitated with increased urinary frequency and incontinence as well as insomnia.  Her granddaughter has tried using Benadryl to help her sleep, however nothing seems to be helping.

Simulation: The set-up for the simulation includes the medical and nursing students reviewing a delirium web module (POGOe #20503) as well as a Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation (SBAR) video attached on the right side of this page, then completing pre-test delirium assessment (Delirium Knowledge Survey) and an assessment of attitudes toward teams in training (KidSIM) prior to the simulation.  Next, each medical and nursing student pair meets approximately 10 minutes prior to the simulation to review instructions, introduce themselves, and discuss thoughts and plans for caring for an agitated patient.  The team is then escorted to the “Emergency Room” where the patient and granddaughter (both are standardized patients) are waiting (faculty observes from control room).  The patient is agitated and anxious and is trying to get out of bed.  The team should elicit information from the granddaughter and recognize that the use of Benadryl and the probable urinary tract infection are the likely etiologies of delirium.  The team has a variety of medications available on the med cart (lorazepam, haloperidol, morphine, and hydroxyzine) as well as restraints, and the patient has “IV” access.  The simulation lasts 20 minutes, and approximately 10-15 minutes into the simulation, once the patient is stable and a plan has been established, the medical student calls the “attending” in the control room, and using SBAR, checks out the patient over the phone.  The faculty member then ends the simulation, and the entire team (faculty member, 2 students, and 2 standardized patients) leave the room for an approximately 15-20 minute debriefing session.  Simulations can run staggered if there are resources to have 2 teams and 2 standardized patients, otherwise the next simulation would begin once the debriefing session ends.

Goals for the simulation and topics for discussion during debriefing session:

  1. Diagnose delirium using CAM
  2. Identify potential causes for delirium
  3. Identify appropriate pharmacologic management for delirium (medication as well as dosage)
  4. Inter-professional collaborative practice
  5. Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation (SBAR)
Educational objectives: 
  1. The students will be able to evaluate a patient with agitated delirium.
  2. The students will be able to outline appropriate treatment for a patient with delirium.
  3. The students will be able to work effectively with students in other professions in the care of a patient with agitated delirium.
  4. The students will be able to achieve 80% on post-test Delirium Survey.
  5. The students will improve their attitudes and beliefs about teams in training (KidSIM).
