Over 220 health and social care students from CUW participated in there 3rd (of 4) IPE events on November 1st in the School of Pharmacy.  This particular event was entirely a small, interprofessional, team event, where 24 groups of students met with a faculty facilitator for 2 hours to discuss a complex medical case.

Physician Assistant Studies, Physical Therrapy, Occupational Therapy, Nursing, Social Work and Pharmacy students were part of these teams.  The teams first engaged in a ‘group think’ activity, which allowed them to see the value of ‘team awareness’ as well as a subsequent exercise that paired students and demonstrated the value of ‘non-defensive’ language for improving interprofessional communication.

The bulk of the evening was a productive interprofessional case work up and prioritization of treatment options, conflict points, and general discussion of the Case of Mrs. Johnson – an elderly and independent women living in rural Wisconsin who is admitted to the hospital after having a cardiovascular event (e.g., a stroke).

Feedback from students was very positive – and the Office of IPE @ CUW would like congratulate these students for taking another step in building their interprofessional competencies as they prepare for more ‘hands-on’ experiences.
