Abstract:
Poster Presentation: Five years ago while co-facilitating a problem-based scenario discussion with a group of fourth-year medical students for the course entitled "Health, Society, and the Physician", the nurse and physician faculty noted that students omitted nursing colleagues as resources in solving this hypothetical problem. The IOM had recently published competencies for all future health care providers that included interdisciplinary practice as a key competency. The faculty pondered how one could set the stage for future collaboration when these last-semester medical students demonstrated a limited understanding of the value of nurses. The faculty collaborated to create an opportunity for medical students to communicate with nurses; witness nurses' competence in providing care; and develop trusting relationships with nurses. It was hypothesized that this experiential learning would be the foundation for collaboration with future interdisciplinary partners. Mutual benefits for students and their nurse preceptors were identified and promoted.. This fall, Collaborating with Nurses to Influence Care was offered for the fourth year on eight hospital units for first and second-year medical students. This poster presentation will describe the process of implementing a nurse shadowing elective in a medical school and the outcomes of this experience on the attitudes of medical students toward the profession of nursing. Multiple examples of student reflections will be shared. This poster presentation may encourage healthcare organizations and schools of medicine to invest in creative solutions to the barriers that prohibit such partnerships today. The lessons learned from this interdisciplinary partnership may stimulate a growth in health practitioner partnerships across disciplines and an increase in nurse shadowing electives offered in medical schools. Finally, the long-term outcome of novice medical students shadowing nurses may be a future health care environment where interdiscip
