Lightning Talk Description: This lightning talk will describe the launching of formal, centralized interprofessional education (IPE) at Clarkson University through the adaptation and implementation of Team Care Planning (TCP). TCP is a simulated clinical discharge planning meeting where students experience working in an interprofessional team to plan the discharge of a patient from the hospital. Before the simulation, students review the patient’s medical record and watch a video about the hospital stay. The simulation involves students from different health professions meeting with the patient and the patient’s caregiver, both played by standardized patients (SPs), to create a shared plan of care. TCP has been successfully implemented at Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) for 15 years, for approximately 200 students annually from the following professions: couple & family therapy, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy (OT), pharmacy, physical therapy (PT), and physician assistant (PA).
Clarkson University (CU) is a private institution with approximately 48,000 students enrolled in undergraduate and graduate programs. The IPE steering committee of the Lewis School of Health Science graduate programs at CU was charged with developing and implementing IPE for students in its OT, PT, and PA programs. In consultation with TJU, CU faculty considered different options for IPE and voted to adapt and implement TCP as its first major centrally administered interprofessional program. CU faculty reviewed TCP materials and revised cases to best fit participating professions. Students from the SUNY Potsdam Theatre and Dance Program were trained as SPs. Additionally, TJU provided a faculty development session on interprofessional facilitation and ran a mock TCP session for CU faculty to gain familiarity with the program and experience with IPE. A portion of the TCP prework for this event included completing an online module which introduced students to IPE, reviewed the roles and responsibilities of each health profession represented at CU, general and CU specific education requirements, and common settings where these professionals work collaboratively. Students also completed a post-module quiz .
A total of 73 students from CU participated in TCP. Presenters will share information on cross-institutional collaboration, the utilization of an online module to introduce IPE to CU healthcare students, outcomes of a post-program evaluation, and lessons learned from implementation of TCP at CU. We will address the theme of “The Classroom and Beyond: Preparing Students for Collaborative Practice” by showing how an institution adapted and implemented an existing IPE program to best fit the needs of its students.
