The 360 Degree Approach: Patient Forward App Development In The Healthcare Space, Rob Mruczek, Tori Styner Dec 2017

The 360 Degree Approach: Patient Forward App Development In The Healthcare Space, Rob Mruczek, Tori Styner

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

The Jefferson Teamwork Observation Guide (JTOG) is a responsive, modern mobile application designed to bring this honesty to healthcare. The app helps to evaluate teamwork at a healthcare system from all possible angles, giving a true 360 degree view of the experience of all participants in a medical setting. A patient's experience in a health system is hardly ever the result of a single employee of that health system, but rather a team of people dedicated to that patient's care, who all have a role in taking care of the patient's particular needs. The best teams, just ...

Using Trauma Case-Based Learning To Inspire Interprofessional Readiness Among Future Health Professionals, Jeanne Felter Phd, Lpc, Stephen Didonato Phd, Lpc, Amy Baker Ms, Pa-C, Richard Hass Phd, Michelle D. Gorenberg Otd, Otr/L

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

Background

It is well established in the literature that patient outcomes and quality of care are optimized when disciplines work together (Chonienne et al., 2010). Interprofessional practice (IPP) among health professionals is even more important when working with individuals exposed to trauma, which can result in disrupted physical, cognitive, and social development, and manifest in an array of physical and psychological symptoms (e.g. Felitti & Anda, 1998). Consequently, professionals across social service and healthcare systems may encounter and simultaneously serve trauma-affected individuals. However, healthcare and behavioral health systems are historically fragmented and frequently fail to provide the coordinated and integrated ...

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

Greetings to all as we embark upon the last weeks of 2017! This fall has been a busy time for JCIPE in many different ways. At the end of September, thirteen JCIPE staff, faculty and students attended the Collaborative Practice conference held in Banff, Alberta, Canada. JCIPE delivered one invited pre-conference workshop and five peer-reviewed, accepted live presentations focusing on a wide range of our activities including Hotspotting, the Health Mentors Program, the Jefferson Teamwork Observation Guide (JTOG) and programmatic sustainability. We learned a lot relative to new program ideas, assessment suggestions and faculty development - just to name a few ...

Interprofessional Practice Increasingly Influences Jefferson Students' University Selection

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

• Data supplied by the Office of Institutional Research and drawn from its New Student Survey question “Please identify why you selected Thomas Jefferson University over other institutions.”

• Students given 29 options and asked to select the top three (3) reasons that influenced their decision.

• Five items are generally cited as major reasons that students select Jefferson, including academic reputation, quality of faculty, campus location, affiliation with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital and clinical opportunities available.

• Despite the above consistent (and expected/desired) reasons and the change in question format to require students to select only their top three reasons for coming ...

To help foster the mission of JCIPE, the Jefferson Digital Commons has partnered to archive the JCIPE eNewsletter. Archiving the newsletter has allowed JCIPE to continue promoting their mission to an international community and has allowed the ...


A Community College Interprofessional Nurse Managed Center Practice Model, Donna Meyer, Msn, Rn, Anef Jun 2016

A Community College Interprofessional Nurse Managed Center Practice Model, Donna Meyer, Msn, Rn, Anef

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

Lewis and Clark Community College (L&C) has initiated an innovative interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) model at its Family Health Clinic (FHC), a nurse managed center, located at the main campus in Godfrey, Illinois. The FHC previously operated successfully for seven years, and has exceeded the projected impact with the numbers of individuals served in the community. The project is innovative and distinctive in providing an IPCP model in that it is inter-institutional, with several of the participating practitioners from institutions other than L&C. The core leadership of the model remains with the nursing professionals at the FHC. It is important to note that a community college is the “home” institution of this interprofessional partnership; fully 46% of students in the U.S. begin their education at a community college (AACC, 2015), and 57% of all nursing graduates begin their academic career with an associate degree from a community college (HRSA, 2013). The integration of interprofessional education (IPE) and practice is becoming more imperative in healthcare, and this model has been created to demonstrate the incorporation of this synthesis in the community college setting. At the core mission of a community college is service to one’s community through partnerships with businesses, healthcare organizations, and other educational institutions. Therefore ...

From Interprofessional Education To Collaborative Practice: A Jefferson Alumna's Perspective, Chelsea (Gorman) Lytle, Bsn, Rn

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

I graduated from Jefferson College of Nursing at Thomas Jefferson University in May 2015 and began my work as a perioperative nurse the following July. During my time at Jefferson, I not only participated in the Health Mentors Program (HMP), but was also given the opportunity to work closely with JCIPE and a group of students from other health care professions to refine and expand IPE offerings. We formed a student organization, now known as Jefferson Students for Interprofessional Education (JSIPE), which had three over-arching goals:

1. Students will gain exposure to real-world collaborative practice teams

2. Students will learn ...

Leveraging Online Learning And Creative Narrative To Advance Interprofessional Competency Development, Karen T. Pardue, Phd, Rn, Cne, Anef, Shelley Cohen Konrad, Phd, Lcsw, Fnap

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

The need for health profession students to engage in collaborative interprofessional education (IPE) is abundantly evident. In contemporary practice, creating clinical environments which promote healing relies not just on the dispositions of individual clinicians, but also on the collective capacities of interprofessional healthcare teams (Konrad & Browning, 2012). Health profession educators are therefore increasingly challenged to: 1. design robust pedagogical curricula that prepare students with discipline-specific competencies to care for future patients; 2. offer shared learning experiences in which students develop interprofessional, team-based capacities grounded in intentional and respectful collaboration; and 3. cultivate an interprofessional culture amongst faculty that models principles and practice being taught to students. These educational objectives emanate from comparable recommendations authored by the Institute of Medicine (2003) and national Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC ...

A Community College's Foray Into Interprofessional Education, Judith Blum, Ms, Otr/L, Mary Kay Demarco, Phd, Rn, Cne

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

As initiatives and innovations in interprofessional education (IPE) continue to flourish in university settings, there is limited evidence this is occurring in two-year allied health and nursing programs found in community colleges. Recent literature indicates that graduates of associate degree allied health and nursing programs account for 49% of the total healthcare workforce (Brookings Institute, 2014). Graduates of these programs will work among those coming from university programs where IPE has been well established, therefore, it is imperative that this content be addressed at the community college. To meet this need, the Community College of Baltimore County’s (CCBC) School ...

Happy Spring! You will notice that the Jefferson Center for Interprofessional Education (JCIPE) newsletter has undergone a name and layout change. This represents the many new directions our Center is taking in both interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice (CP) training. Indeed, JCIPE has had another busy spring. We started the new year by piloting the patient version of the Jefferson Teamwork Observation Guide (JTOG) in the inpatient setting, expanding an outpatient pilot that started last fall. Thanks to many research assistants, we have been able to gather some rich and informative data and this summer we hope to have ...

Ipe Grand Rounds Learning Activity, Adrienne Christopher

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

I attended the IPE Grand Rounds hosted by Jefferson Students for Interprofessional Education (JSIPE) with the Palliative Care Team. There were several different health care professionals present on the panel that explained their specific and individualized roles within the Palliative Care team, as well how these roles united to help them function best as a group. The panel demonstrated these specific roles with a case presentation that also helped illustrate some of the conflicts they face on a daily basis, and how they overcome these conflicts to best serve their patients.

Teamstepps® Interprofessional Learning Activity, Brady Mcguire

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

In October 2014 I participated in a TeamSTEPPS® interprofessional (IP) learning activity that has already positively affected my performance in my first clinical field-work rotation. An IP team of professors from the nursing, occupational therapy, medicine, and pharmacy programs hosted the learning activity. Potential difficulty of cross-disciplinary interaction was noted from the beginning as students from each discipline sat in groups despite encouragement to split up. However, with direction from the professors, we formed small interdisciplinary groups and participated in a teamwork-focused icebreaker followed by a lecture about the origins and techniques of the TeamSTEPPS® system. After the lecture we ...

Background: IPE and Practice-based Learning

It is well established that there is a need for Interprofessional Education (IPE) in the current landscape of health education1 and students that participate in IPE enjoy these experiences and develop skills in interprofessional teamwork that prepare them for future team-based practice.2,3,4 IPE, however, is not standardized. It ranges from programs that teach theoretical frameworks in a classroom setting to others that allow interprofessional teams of students to work together in a clinical setting.5,6 The second form is referred to as practice-based learning (PrBL).3 PrBL is now considered by ...

Development Of A Cultural And Spiritual Toolbox: A High Impact Interprofessional Project, Marian Nowak, Dnp, Mph, Rn, Fcn

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

Healthcare providers may not be prepared to incorporate cultural and spiritual aspects of patient care within their practice. The cultural and spiritual toolbox project will increase the opportunity for those working in a local three campus hospital system to deliver patient-centered care at the bedside by helping them recognize the nuances of various cultures and religions. An interprofessional team convened over a one year period to explore how these aspects of care could be met.

To this end, the team researched and developed a “Cultural and Spiritual Toolbox” which offers information in an online format. This project will be fully ...

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

The critical need for students to learn to be effective members of interprofessional teams in preparation for collaborative practice-ready care provision now and in the future has been well documented1. There are increasing opportunities for students to observe interprofessional events to assist them in doing so, but often their role is passive and the teams may not demonstrate the highest level of patient-centered care, minimizing the student learning.

A recent review of pre-qualifying interprofessional education in the UK reported the practical challenges of synchronising interprofessional education1. Whilst it was noted that online interprofessional courses were developed primarily to overcome timetabling conflicts of students and clinicians from various health professions, it was recognised that a blended learning approach with appropriate student support could enable an effective interprofessional education experience with lower running costs and reduced disruption. It was found, however, that despite the ubiquity of e-learning in interprofessional education there seemed to be less sharing than expected1.

The delivery of quality care is best done by a group of practitioners who can effectively communicate and utilize the ‘team decision making approach’ to solve patient/client/person care issues. Organizations such as the WHO advise us that “after almost 50 years of inquiry, there is now sufficient evidence to indicate that interprofessional education enables effective collaborative practice which in turn optimizes health-services, strengthens health systems and improves health outcomes” (2010, p18). The need to implement interprofessional team based approaches to patient care is important. What is also essential is the need to provide interprofessional learning opportunities for today ...
