Abstract: 

The World 2 Challenge is an innovative quality improvement competition designed by our Reynolds Next Steps team, based on the concept of a healthcare hackathon.  We partnered with institutional leadership in our health system, graduate medical education leadership, nursing, physical therapy, pharmacy, and other interprofessional representatives to design a platform to promote friendly competition led by specialty faculty, fellows, and residents to improve the quality of care for older adults. In the process, they learn key principles of geriatrics and how to apply them at a broader level across the institution. Our first competition in April 2016 focused on improving communication at transitions of care for older patients.  At a retreat, 9 QI project "pitches" were delivered to a broad interprofessional audience, 5 were chosen by a voting process and developed their ideas further through interprofessional team collaboration. Ultimately, 2 project ideas were selected to go forward, and the ultimate winner of the QI competition will be the project with the most successful implementation and the broadest impact for the care of older patients institution-wide. This has been an energizing initial effort, and we look forward to its continuing for years to come because of several unique aspects that promote its success. The most important are the interprofessional focus, teamwork, contextual learning, and alignment with institutional priorities to make actual change in the way that patients are cared for at our institution.  We provide a timeline that illustrates the key inputs and steps to promote such a QI competition to enhance geriatric education and care.  We also provide the event agenda, pitch template, judging template, list of pitch topics, and follow-up inhouse publicity from our institution to give our geriatrics colleagues at other institutions sample materials which could be adapted to their specific needs.

Educational objectives: 
  1. To demonstrate how geriatrics can lead and facilitate improvements in care across the broader institution through interprofessional focus, teamwork, contextual learning, and alignment with institutional priorities, grounded in geriatrics principles.

Abstract: 

'Healthy Brain, Healthy Mind' (HBHM) is a five session educational course for patients and other older adults (ie, caregivers) that nonstigmattically addresses mental health. Now also translated into Spanish, HBHM  teaches participants twelve pathways to a healthy brain and mind (including healthy diet, sleep practices, remaining active, social engagement, self-advocacy, menaging emotions, continued learning, positive self-talk, gratitude, resilience, connecting with nature, and service to others) while discussing stress management and goal setting. Training materials include a facilitator's guide and participant workbook. This curriculum can also be used as a model for healthcare provider communication with older adults.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of this program, participants will be better able to understand stress management.

After completion of this this program, participants will understand the working relationship with physiological and mental health.

Abstract: 

This 30 minute "Concepts in Common" video synthesizes the key aspects of dementia from an interdisciplinary approach. All team members, including the patient and family, need to have a common understanding of key terms and each's role from a common framework.  Communicating using SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Request/Recommendation)  is essential and clarified with a "Role Map."

Educational objectives: 

- Define and understand dementia and its significance in patient care

- Learn how to administer and interpret the Mini-Cog

Abstract: 

This educational module is intended for an interdisciplinary audience of staff who work with older patients in hospitals or long term care facilities.  The emphasis is on the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to care of the older patient and ensuring each team member understands his or her own role in communicating once a fall has taken place. Providers, nurses, C.N.A.s, social workers, rehabilitation therapists, housekeeping, transport, and any other person who comes into contact with an older patient is considered part of the interdisciplinary team.  All team members understanding common concepts and a shared model on how to communicate (use of SBAR) promotes better care of the patient who has fallen.  The 30 minute video is clear and concise. 

Educational objectives: 

- Understand the signficance of falls and their consequences in acute patient care

- Learn the role specific post-fall assessment techniques

- Define your role on an interdisciplinary team in caring for patients after a fall

- Learn how to communicate effectively about falls using "SBAR" (Situaion, Background, Assessment,        Request/Recommendation)

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.

Interprofessional Geriatric Education and Training in Texas: Elder Mistreatment

Abstract: 

Although estimates vary, it is generally believed that 11% of the elderly are abused. According to the National Incidence Study on Elder Abuse, approximately 450,000 elderly experienced abuse each year. If self-neglect is included, the number increases to 551,000. Elder mistreatment is too large of a problem for any one person or one discipline to resolve. Incorporating the expertise of all the members of the interprofessional healthcare team is critical to determine the facts in the situation and the motives of the people involved. Healthcare providers can only see what is presented in the clinical setting. There is so much of the story that may not be manifested in a routine exam and encounter. Having all team members knowledgeable about the sometimes subtle signs of elder mistreatment is helpful for eliciting information and devising a holistic intervention plan.

The University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTSHC) Reynolds Interprofessional Geriatric Education and Training in Texas (IGET-IT) Program has developed an Elder Mistreatment module as part of the Interprofessional Communication Improvement Modules (ICIM) Elder Safety series. The ICIM Elder Safety modules were created in collaboration with the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners (NBOME) and are supported, in part, by a grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation. The goal of the Elder Safety ICIMs is to provide innovative and sustainable programs to improve the ability of physicians to work with other health disciplines in teams to provide better care for geriatric patients. The care of older adults can be very complex and studies have shown that a team approach can be most effective in leading to quality outcomes.

 

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Define “elder mistreatment”
  • Describe the prevalence of elder mistreatment in the US
  • Define the multiple forms of elder mistreatment
  • Identify risk factors for elder mistreatment
  • List indicators of elder mistreatment
  • Prioritize the steps of elder mistreatment assessment
  • Determine the approach for including an elder mistreatment assessment in an IP team model of geriatric assessment
