Lightning Talk Description:
Description of the Lightening Talk:
Health professional students are adults and are thus at the post-conventional level of the Kohlberg model of moral development. But within this post-conventional stage, we find a wide variety of understanding and lived experience. As students clarify and connect their own personal values to their emerging understanding of the values of their chosen profession, a common educational method is to work through real-life case scenarios. At the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, students from dental medicine, medicine, undergraduate nursing, pharmacy, physical therapy, and physician assistant programs gather virtually and in person to learn about healthcare ethics and equity through an unfolding case study. Over a seven-week course involving over 700 students, complex learning activities assist all programs in meeting accreditation standards for interprofessional and ethics education.
How the Summit Theme will be Addressed:
This presentation will describe how interprofessional collaboration is utilized to address health equity, racism, and bias in practice. We will share how post-course student evaluation qualitative data demonstrated a change in attitudes toward mental health and substance use stigma after teams performed several ethical analysis activities centered on a longitudinal case study with interprofessional peers.
Description of how the Lightning Talk will provide knowledge to learners or describe outcomes that contribute toward better care, better value, and better education in practice and community settings:
This lightning talk will provide a brief overview of the Interprofessional Healthcare Ethics and Health Equity course at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. We will present the unfolding case study used throughout the course and the associated learning activities: eight-step ethical analysis, debate, mock consultation, and team-based discussion boards. Post-course evaluation qualitative data relevant to these activities will be shared. Student reflections show that the use of an unfolding case study in this foundational course provided them an opportunity to increase their knowledge, broaden their attitudes, and supply them with tools needed to approach stigma and bias in clinical settings.
How the Lightening Talk Fulfills Priority Criteria:
This presentation provides a replicable opportunity to incorporate an unfolding case study underscoring social determinants of health, bias, and stigma to prompt and provoke ethical development. Measurable interprofessional learning and growth in student attitudes about health equity are captured. Qualitative data demonstrates the recognition of potential discord between personal and professional values, and how gut reactions change when ethical frameworks are implemented.
