[Leadership session research presentation] In 2005, under the leadership of Dr. Grayce Sills, a multidisciplinary consortium pilot was formed to address the issue of ineffective multidisciplinary collaboration. The OSU Collaborative for Behavioral Health is an educational project for graduate students and faculty at Ohio State University in the fields of psychiatry, primary care, psychology, nursing, social work, and couples and family counseling. The collaborative uses weekly clinical seminars combined with placement of students in both traditional and non-traditional settings, to transform theoretical learning into practice knowledge. The program strives to prepare health professionals for the challenges of the 21st century by: incorporating interdisciplinary training models, utilizing evidence-based practice, identified best-practices, emphasizing the principles of culturally competent and trauma-informed care, within an integrated mind-body approach to treatment (Sills, 2006). Family Nurse Practitioner students were included in the group to provide depth of focus for the work with the project designed to provide support to formerly homeless women who were reintegrating into society. The residents have a safe and supportive living environment that consists of an apartment, access to health promotion services and social services. The FNP students work with the residents in a free clinic setting as well as meeting their health promotion needs. As part of the experience, the FNP students and the Psychiatric/Mental Health CNS student meet with the large group to discuss issues which range from health care policy to multidisciplinary care planning and case management issues. This presentation will outline the formation of the collaborative, the issues that were confronted and ameliorated and plans for future sustainment. This is the one of the very few funded, active collaboratives with this structure in the United States at the present time. It is a unique opportunity for participants to discuss implementation of the highly valued concepts in nursing, that of collaboration and mentoring.
