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


As a Jefferson College of Nursing student (JCN), I had the opportunity to be involved in several JCIPE initiatives, including the Jefferson Student lnterprofessional Complex Care Collaborative program (J-SICCC, formerly Student Hotspotting) and Team Simulation & Fearlessness Education (TeamSAFE). As a member of J-SICCC, I worked with an interprofessional team of students to support a patient with complex social and healthcare needs. The TeamSAFE training was incorporated within the JCN curriculum, and after participating as a student I was able to volunteer as a co-facilitator. In addition, I had the chance to work with one of the JCN faculty members, Jamie Smith, as well as other JCN nursing students to support a collaboration between JCN, JCIPE and the Hansjörg Wyss Wellness Center in South Philadelphia.
