2014 Geriatric Education Center (GEC) 3-Part Interprofessional Collaborative Practice Workshop Series

Durham, NC US
October 22, 2014 to November 19, 2014

Event Dates: Oct 22, 2014 || Nov 5, 2014 || Nov 19, 2014

We are all striving to improve the quality of care we provide our older patients. This is hard work in this age of complex problems and even more complex systems. One key to better care is a better team. Healthcare practitioners need to work together and communicate effectively as members of interprofessional teams to solve problems. However, many practitioners have never had formal training in effective interprofessional practice. This workshop provides that training for teams striving to improve their performance.   Based on the Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice published by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), this workshop will utilize didactic presentations, facilitated discussions, experiential team development exercises, hands-on activities and reflective exercises, all with a focus on improving care.  Each workshop is 3.5 hours. 

Learning Objectives

By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify personal and professional values and roles, and explain how they contribute to the team dynamic and collaborative practice
  2. Master relationship-building principles to enhance team performance
  3. Integrate quality improvement tools into work processes to aid team-based care
