Abstract: 

Older adults are exposed to multiple hazards during hospitalization resulting in multiple complications that limit their return to their functional and cognitive baseline. It is critical that healthcare providers are trained on best practices in the care of hospitalized older adults. This product is a monthlong module for M4 students during their Sub I rotation, that focuses on educating them on the hazards of hospitalization, best practices in the care of hospitalized older adults, issues that occur during transitions of care and best practices to ensure optimal transitions across care settings. The module starts with an initial lecture on hazards of hospitalization and best practices in the care of older adults. This is followed by assignments in which students are assigned older aduts to care for. Using a checklist, they evaluate the care that these patients have received and also implement best practices in the care of their patient. They also participate in an interdisciplinary team meeting that focuses on these aspects of care.  This is followed by another assignment in which they are involved in deciding on the most appropriate discharge care setting their patient. They subsequently place a post discharge call to their patient to identify any issues thay may have encountered post discharge and assist them in resolving some of these issues. Through the month, students share their experiences on blackboard, outlining hazards they identified in their patients,  challenges in implementing best practices, choice of discharge care setting and reasons for their choices along with care transitions issues identified in their patients. Additionally they are required to review educational materials and published articles posted on blackboard, focused on hazards of hospitalization, best practices in care, settings of care and transitions of care.  A final class is held with the students at the end of the month discussing the rotation and their experiences, with a focus on settings of care and best practices in transitions of care.

Educational objectives: 

At the end of this course, each participant will be able to:

1. Describe the hazards of hospitalization of older adults.

2. Evaluate the care and implement best practices in the management of a hospitalized older adult.

3. Enumerate the discharge options available in a particular case scenario.

4. Compare and contrast the problematic elements of care transition with those of an ideal care transition.

Abstract: 

Care teams often don't know how to effectively and efficiently collaborate when addressing a patient’s health. Depending on a patient’s needs, team leadership can shift at any given moment from one person to another. Because of this constant jockeying and adaptation, educating learners about their own interprofessional relationships is becoming incredibly important. These videos and the corresponding text supplements provide a context for interprofessional team members to discover more about what it takes to become a member of another profession. This knowledge, combined with their own experiences and clinical practice, will assist in preparing learners for the next-generation of team-based healthcare.

Educational objectives: 

After watching these short 2-3 minute videos, interprofessional teams will be able to contextualize their own relationship within the group dynamic, understand the educational requirements that go into other disciplines, and formulate an effective team-based learning approach for future activities.
