The purpose of this study was to evaluate outcomes of a University Task Force on Interprofessional Education and Research (1995-2001). Blumberg's and Deveau's COECA (Charting Outcomes of Educational and Clinical Approaches) Model was used as a framework. The Task Force of eleven faculty from nine Schools or Departments initiated four clinical and/or educational programs. For each program, the sample was comprised of clients or students who availed themselves of its services. Task Force methods consisted of a community development model of healthcare delivery and behavioral modeling in teaching interdisciplinary practice. Results are reported for each program. First, a rural health outreach demonstration program (1996-2000) was created that provided 990 pediatric screens, 89 dental screens, 1987 mental health visits, 138 mental health teleconsults, 115 child development evaluations, and 342 breast and cervical cancer screens. Sixty students from six disciplines participated in 953 clinical practicum days during this outreach program. Second, a seminar, "The Study of Interprofessional Practice" (1996-present) was developed. By the 2000-2001 school year, an interdisciplinary mix of 240 students were enrolled each semester. Third, a community and university partnership (1998-present) was initiated. As of May 2001, thirty-one students and faculty from six disciplines had addressed five community-identified health promotion needs within medically underserved areas. Fourth, Task Force members have begun planning an older adult rehospitalization reduction program and student practicum (2000-present), built on literature review findings, a case control study of 170 charts aimed at identifying readmission risks, and staff and caregiver surveys. Since 1996, Task Force members made 18 conference presentations, published four articles, and produced one video. It is concluded that the COECA Model is an effective tool for summarizing clinical and educational approaches for evaluative and administrative purposes.
