Abstract:
Working with the Transdisciplinary Team: Establishing a Comprehensive Long-Term Care Education, Service and Research Program
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Cherry, Barbara
P.I. Institution Name:Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center
The purpose of this presentation is to describe one university health sciences center’s strategic initiative to develop a comprehensive aging and long-term care education, service and research program. The development of this initiative to advance excellence in long-term care is the responsibility of a transdisciplinary team with nursing providing a primary leadership role. As a foundation structure for the program, the university has entered into partnership with a nonprofit, private organization and the construction of a state-of-the-art teaching nursing home is currently underway on the university campus. This facility will be a fully functional long-term care facility offering excellence in the care of the elderly that will serve as a model in long-term care for practitioners, students and the long-term care industry. The teaching nursing home will act as a clinical training site for transdisciplinary teams that will include nursing, medical, allied health and pharmacy students and faculty. In addition, students on the general academic campus pursuing degrees in areas such as social services, nutrition, psychology, law, and health organization management will be able to work with and utilize elder care skills gained in their own discipline. The overarching goal of this venture is to produce highly skilled geriatric practitioners. The stages of design and implementation, challenges encountered, planning processes, and nursing’s significant role in coordinating and leading this exciting project will be described during the presentation.
