IPEC 561. IPE Virtual Geriatric Case. 2 Hours.
Semester course; 2 lecture hours (delivered online). 2 credits. Using a web-based interface, health professional students from multiple disciplines will collaborate to identify health care needs and plan care for an older adult patient. Contemporary theoretical concepts and evidence-based recommendations are integrated within a complex, unfolding case that crosses all settings and services of care: ambulatory, inpatient, post-acute, community-based and palliative/end-of-life. Patient- and family-centered care concepts are also emphasized throughout each module. Students who participate in this preceptor-supervised virtual case will make decisions based on their discipline-specific geriatric-gerontological competencies, reinforce understandings about the scope of practice for other health professions and expand working capacity for interprofessionalism and team-based care.
