Lightning Talk Description: This lightning talk will center on IPE experiences at the University of Minnesota (UMN) through showcasing the geriatric case competition. The annual interprofessional geriatric case competition, is one of several interprofessional case competitions offered at UMN, and the lightning talk will discuss an overview and comparison of the various case competitions offered.
The Interprofessional geriatric case competition is open to undergraduate and graduate level students from multiple disciplines and schools at the UMN to come together and develop a comprehensive, interprofessional plan of care for a fictional older adult. This discussion will focus on the experience of students, especially focused on the interdisciplinary learning that students experience supported by an interdisciplinary group of coaches and judges, both from the university as well as the community. We will share about the IPEC competencies integrated into the competition, as well as results that we have received during evaluation of the competition from students, coaches, and judges.
In the geriatrics event, students are put on teams based only on the interprofessional representation; we build teams with knowledge of which program/ degree they represent. Students are paired with a coach that represents another discipline which is not yet represented by a student on the team; this provides diversity of knowledge in the team. The coaches are judges or community healthcare professionals with expertise in healthcare. Many coaches are experts in Geriatrics and/or Interprofessional Education. Students are supported by their coach for advice on content and interprofessional collaboration. These community partners introduce students to nursing homes or other aging service organizations, and ideally inspire interest in the geriatric workforce.
Importantly, the Geriatric Case Competition requires students to 2 Identify and address factors beyond clinical care (e.g. social determinants) that affect the health of individuals, communities, and populations. Student teams are scored on the rubric according to these criteria. Some excellent student teams identify a plan for patient education (address potential issues such as health literacy, cultural diversity, racial/ethnic issues, cognitive issues, etc.). All students are advised to create a culturally responsive care plan including (ie. trauma, environment of the patient, understanding patients cultural and personal values, social determinants of health, and health equity impacts). The rubric scoring reflects this priority.
All four of the concurrent UMN case competitions include IPE content approved by the Center for Interprofessional Health. Two of the competitions use the ICCAS for Measurable learning outcomes. All are designed around IPEC competencies.
