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


JCIPE’s Interprofessional Palliative Care Program is a semester-long learning collaborative in which small interprofessional student teams learn about the team-based provision of palliative care for persons with serious illness and at the end of life. Using the National Consensus Project’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care as a framework, teams work collaboratively through case-based discussions and presentations. Additionally, participants have an opportunity to observe Jefferson’s Palliative Care Team’s interdisciplinary rounds and to shadow a Jefferson palliative care provider.
