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.

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

Abstract: 

Each year, one in every three adults ages 65 or older falls and 2 million are treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries. The risk of falling increases with each decade of life. The long-term consequences of fall injuries, such as hip fractures and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), can impact the health and independence of older adults. However, falls are not necessarily an inevitable part of aging. In fact, many falls can be prevented. All healthcare professionals can take actions to protect older adults.

The University of North Texas Health Science Center (UNTSHC) Reynolds Interprofessional Geriatric Education and Training in Texas (IGET-IT) Program has developed a Fall Risk Assessment and Education 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:

  • Describe risk factors associated with falls in older adults using a comprehensive fall risk assessment.
  • Identify examination components to assess for fall risk.
  • Describe how neurocognitive features can contribute to the risk of falls.
  • Identify four essential tests to assess neurocognitive features.
  • Describe how sensory factors impact the risk of falls.
  • Identify exams to assess sensory factors.
  • Identify the prescription, nonprescription, nutritional supplements, and food/drug interactions that are most frequently associated with an increased fall risk.
  • Discuss polypharmacy and its impact on fall risk.
  • Examine the evidence behind nutritional supplements that may help reduce fractures from falls.

Abstract: 

The Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, together with the Rutgers University School of Nursing, and Rutgers School of Health Related Professions, piloted an interactive, team-based “Interprofessional Grand Rounds” as an instructional strategy to promote interprofessional care plan development and enhance understanding of roles and responsibilities across disciplines.  A total of 235 nursing, physical therapy, respiratory therapy, and medical students collaborated in small groups to problem-solve a complex, multi-faceted case presented with video elements to facilitate gait analysis.  Students answered case study questions using an innovative scratch-off ticket technique.  A team of interdisciplinary faculty facilitated the case-based group discussions. 

Educational objectives: 
  • Explain the importance of effective team communication in a healthcare setting
  • Stimulate team skills in respectful communication and cooperation by creating collaborative interprofessional groups
  • Report increased knowledge of other health care professions and individual confidence in taking an active role as a member of an interprofessional team
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Students were seated in small groups of 5 to 7 students representing different health care professions.  This design created a collaborative atmosphere and allowed open communication among the students from all professions.

  • Chairs in clusters (no tables)
  • Mixture of team members from each health care profession
  • Typical team composition: 3 to 5 Medical Students, 1 Nursing student, 1 to 2  Physical Therapy students, and 1 Respiratory Therapy student
