On January 25 and February 1, more than 230 students and faculty from nine different health care disciplines at UNC gathered for an initiative targeting interprofessional teamwork and case-based learning. This is funded in part by the Bureau of Health Professions (BHPr), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) “Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program.” A group of interprofessional faculty, including Professor Sue Coppola, OTD, OT/L, FAOTA, have implemented this program since 2000. Bringing together the fields of occupational therapy, physical therapy, nursing, social work, pharmacy, dentistry, dental hygiene, speech-language pathology, medicine, and nutrition, students were offered tangible examples of their professors and mentors collaborating over the case of older adults who could benefit from their collective input and treatment. Students were subsequently divided into smaller interdisciplinary teams to discuss the case studies. Due to the need for 21st century health care teams to think and act collaboratively, UNC-CH faculty see this as a crucial step toward equipping students with these practical skills to augment their deep knowledge base in their respective disciplines. The experience gave  students an “appreciation for the complexity of care involved in treating older adults and the need for interprofessional communication and collaboration,” according to Palmyra Romero, class of 2018. Just as Harry Truman famously mused: “Imagine how much we could get done if we didn’t care who got the credit,” this project aims to equip students with the wisdom to coordinate, refer and sometimes defer to colleagues when it is in the best interest of the older adult. By doing so, the goal of clinically excellent, insightful, creative client care can be achieved in our generation.
