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


I had the opportunity to work with two JCIPE programs as a Graduate Assistant – Team Care Planning (TCP) and Enhancing Services for Homeless Populations (ESHP). Team Care Planning involves interprofessional groups of students participating in a simulated discharge planning meeting with a standardized patient. For TCP, I analyzed data from simulation sessions to identify common themes that students discuss when reflecting on their simulation experience. I also worked with the Team Care Planning team to put together materials to market TCP to other universities. Enhancing Services for Homeless Populations is a virtual simulation program utilizing the program Second Life to help students learn to work on a team and provide high quality care for individuals experiencing homelessness. For ESHP, I worked to integrate harm reduction content into the program. I have updated the pre-work materials for the program to include this new concept.
