Geriatric Education Center (GEC) Inter-Professional Collaborative Practice (IPEC) Workshop Series [Session: March 21, 2014]

March 21, 2014 to March 28, 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 inter-professional teams to solve problems. However, many practitioners have never had formal training in effective inter-professional practice. This workshop provides that training for teams striving to improve their performance.   Based on the Core Competencies for Inter-professional Collaborative Practice published by the Inter-professional 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.
