Abstract: 

Patient Complexity and Interprofessional Team Care is a geriatrics block rotation mini-course designed to improve medicine trainee’s understanding of health care teams.  It was developed in the setting of a new model of care collaboration for vulnerable seniors, Geriatric Resources for Assessment and Care of Elders.  The course is a blended curriculum offered during a 4-week residency block rotation in geriatrics. It is composed of a web-based, audio, PowerPoint lecture to introduce the Minnesota Complexity Assessment Method (MCAM) tool and application of the tool using paper cases.  The tool is then applied to actual patients discussed at an interprofessional team meeting of the GRACE care management program.

Educational objectives: 

Given a screening of the patient medical record, attendance at the patient’s GRACE interprofessional team meeting and completion of the Minnesota Complexity Assessment Method (MCAM) tool, the health professional trainee will identify patient situation complexity and describe ways that interprofessional team care members address patient care.

Given a printed Likert scale questionnaire, the resident will indicate positive change in degree of agreement with beliefs about interprofessional teams.

The poster described the 12-item physician survey to assess post-graduate medicine resident beliefs regarding interdisciplinary teams.  Resident responses demonstrated that interdisciplinary team participation is perceived as worthwhile. Yet, residents were uncertain about when their patient needed a team. There was significant agreement for having physicians as leaders of teams, and yet there was not clear agreement on team goals. Survey results support development of curricula for medicine residents geared toward teaching when a team approach is indicated and clarifying roles of various team members.

Abstract: 

This comprehensive teaching casebook provides guidance on incorporating gerontological competencies into required generalist courses focusing on social justice and practice with organizations and communities. The case study centers on a social work intern in a regional hospital who has been called in to the emergency room by a nurse supervisor to talk with an 80-year-old widow. Included in the casebook are gerontological competencies that fit into the required generalist practice course, the case and where it fits in the curriculum, suggestions for how the case can be used, additional learning activities, background reading for faculty, and much more.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion of the case, students will have learned the following competencies:

  • Recognize and identify family, agency, community, and society factors that promote or inhibit the greatest possible independence of the older adult.
  • Collaborate with other health, mental health and allied health professionals in delivering services to older adults.
  • Assess organization and community effectiveness in meeting needs of older adults and their caregivers.
  • Recognize indicators of the need for more in-depth assessment of areas of concern

Product Information
Abstract: 

Undergraduate social work students participate in a semester-long person-centered care project with memory impaired residents at an assisted-living facility. Service activities culminate in oral history interviews of residents gathered by students as a strategy to introduce students to principles of person-centered care. To prepare for engaging with residents, students complete a series of web-based tutorials on basic communication skills with older adults, read literature on communication from the Alzheimer’s Association, and view an in-class video on effective communication with older adults who have dementia. 

Educational objectives: 

Students apply person-centered care principles through individualized social engagement activities with residents of an assisted living facility.
