Students learn about interdisciplinary teams

By Denisé Dews

As part of a campus-wide interprofessional collaborative event, 145 students from nursing, nutrition, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, and social work are learning what it means to work as an interdisciplinary team.

Held at the School of Social Work on three consecutive Thursdays, faculty members developed this case-based group learning experience. The event allows students to engage in an interdisciplinary collaborative process to analyze and create a comprehensive plan for evaluation and intervention. The cases have a geriatric focus and application across areas of practice (children, kinship care, schools, families and couples) is highlighted.
