Poster presented on Friday, April 12, 2013, Saturday, April 13, 2013

Students in healthcare who learn how to function as teams prior to becoming licensed professionals can contribute positively to goal achievement and patient outcomes. Interprofessional Education (IPE) provides students an opportunity to learn by functioning as a team to improve communication skills and role behaviors in patient care.

The purpose of this research is to measure communication and teamwork skills of senior undergraduate nursing students in a baccalaureate program and third year medical students working in IPE teams. The data will be collected at the end of 3 months and repeated at the end of the IPE project, and focus groups will be conducted. Students participate in the IPE project as part of their clinical experience.

The IPE teams schedule meetings with patients, as well as developing on-line healthcare plans as a means of communication with the patient. Students may also follow-up with the patients by phone. Meetings are conducted in person approximately once a month for the length of the project.

Students are supervised by faculty from the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing at each team meeting with the patient. Faculty also review the health care coaching plans. The faculty utilizes rubrics to provided feedback to the students based on individual and group communication skills with the patient and overall team functioning. The project is currently in progress and final data will be available March 2013. 

Goals:

1)    Gain understanding about the impact of health and illness on a patient’s life and family system.

2)    Apply bio/psychosocial information to improve patient care.

3)    Learn how agencies and organizations impact individual and community/public health.

4)    Understand healthcare teamwork.

5)    Gain insight into community health issues.

6)    Develop strategies to improve the health of the participant by including them as a team member.
