Abstract: 

With the aging population growing to be a significant portion of our population learners will likely face a scenario where a patient’s goals of care may be less aggressive than the standard of care.  It is important for learners to be aware of the need to assess these goals prior to initiating treatment.  In addition, it is important for learners to have the experience of filling out a death certificate as this is likely their first experience to do so.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion of this simulation exercise, participants should:

1.  Understand goals of care

2.  Practice having a family discussion 

3.  Learn how to fill out a death certificate

Interdisciplinary Team Care

Product Information
Estimated time to complete:

Abstract: 

Research suggests that good interdisciplinary team communication leads to improved patient and family outcomes (i.e., high levels of patient and family satisfaction, symptom control, and reductions in length of stay and hospital costs). The purpose of the interdisciplinary team is to foster regular, structured and expert communication among health professionals from different disciplines in order to establish, prioritize, and achieve patient treatment goals.

Interdisciplinary team communication is vital in an inpatient healthcare setting, as the complex nature and demands of the healthcare work environment requires the expertise and knowledge of differing disciplines or specialists who can work together to solve multifaceted and complex patient care problems. Interdisciplinary teamwork can improve the diagnostic and prognostic abilities of health professionals more than individual health professionals working alone.

The IDT conference focuses on:
1.    Establishing the patient’s progress toward medical goals;
2.    Considering possible resolutions of any problems that could impede the patient’s progress toward these goals;
3.    Reassessing the goals previously established, if needed; and
4.    Monitoring and revising the treatment plan, as needed

Educational objectives: 

At the end of this module, the student should be able to:
1.    Define the concept of interdisciplinary team care;
2.    Describe the professional role and scope of practice of individual members of an interdisciplinary health care team;
3.    Learn to structure an IDT Conference;
4.    Understand the goals of the IDT Conference;
5.    Identify ways to run an IDT Conference effectively; and
6.    Discuss common pitfalls of the IDT Conference

Abstract: 

The purpose of this case study is to identify policies affecting the key characters and decision makers, which is a skill central to being an effective advocate for older adults. The central character of this case study is Isabella Wright, a fictitious name for a real client. However, the incidents in the case study are a collation of experiences from clients in similar situations as Isabella. This exercise is intended to demonstrate the policy dilemma of equity between generations as well as the dynamic relationship between policies from the macro to the micro level. The Advanced Gerontology Social Work Practice Guide identifies this class exercise to support students’ attainment of the advanced gerontology practice behavior 2.1.9—Respond to contexts that shape practice.

Educational objectives: 

The purpose of this case study is to identify policies affecting the key characters and decision makers, which is a skill central to being an effective advocate for older adults. Social work students are not expected to be knowledgeable about the policies that they identify but are expected to suggest where they might find more information about particular policies.
