IPEC 561. IPE Virtual Geriatric Case. 2 Hours.

Semester course; 2 lecture hours (delivered online). 2 credits. Health professional learners from multiple disciplines will collaborate to identify health care needs and plan care for an older adult. Contemporary theoretical concepts and evidence-based recommendations will be integrated within a complex, unfolding case that crosses all settings of care: ambulatory, inpatient, post-acute, community-based and palliative/end-of-life. Patient- and family-centered care concepts will also be emphasized throughout each module. Learners who participate in this preceptor-supervised virtual case will make decisions based on their discipline-specific geriatric/gerontological competencies, practice identifying and retrieving evidence to fill gaps in knowledge, reinforce understandings about the scope of practice for other health professions, and expand working capacity for interprofessionalism and team-based care. Graded as pass/fail.
