IntroductionThe use of interprofessional education (IPE) to drive collaborative practice (CP) is an area of evolving focus, with recent work turning to leadership skills as an imperative force to meet the Quadruple Aim goals. While leadership practices have been called out as one small part of interprofessional competence to optimize teams and teamwork, there is currently no nationally accepted set of leadership behaviors that can be taught across all health care programs. For this to happen,…

Estimates indicate over 95% of children in the United States regularly visit a pediatric provider and primary care is the only health care system attended by the vast majority of children before school enrollment. Approximately 40% of outpatient pediatric visits involve a mental or behavioral health concern. However, pediatric providers often lack training and confidence to diagnose and treat children’s mental health. Meanwhile, a critical shortage of child psychiatrists has existed for decades…

Since the advent of the HITECH Act (2009), there has been exponential growth of the electronic health record (EHR). While advances in clinical decision support and limited interoperability have been made, limitations in EHR functionality still exist for clinicians. This is particularly evident for healthcare teams. EHR platforms were designed for individual end-users and lack functionality for active teaming in the clinical arena. Better EHR technology infrastructure is needed to optimize team-…

Just prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, faculty and students at Pennsylvania State university had begun piloting an Interprofessional Teaching Clinic (IPTC) Consult Service. On account of the pandemic, the IPTC abruptly transitioned from in-person encounters to operating remotely using a telehealth model. Patients “seen” at the IPTC are referred by their primary care physicians (PCP) due to belief that these patients would benefit from an interprofessional consultation. As with in-person visits,…

Longitudinal Interprofessional Practice and Education Curriculum #2

The Interprofessional Education Collaborative defines four competency domains as essential to interprofessional education (IPE). However, there is no consistent model for IPE curriculum development across health professions programs, and many learning opportunities are independent, siloed experiences offering little continuity from one experience to the next. Additionally, programs are challenged to provide authentic learning experiences that reflect both clinical and community health settings…

More than two-thirds of the lives lost each year are because of five non-communicable chronic diseases (NCDs): cancer, heart disease, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and diabetes. Presently, 90% of national health care spending is related to NCD management. Modifiable risk factors of physical inactivity, tobacco use, excess alcohol consumption, poor diet, and psychosocial factors contribute strongly to NCD development. The primary modality addressing these risk factors is…

Humility, in the general sense, involves an accurate assessment of one’s abilities, achievements, as well as gaps in knowledge and limitations, and an acceptance that one is but a part of a vast universe. We argue that healthcare has a humility problem.

Societal focus on personal responsibility for obesity has been shown to contribute to negative attitudes about people with obesity among healthcare providers and internalized weight bias among patients. Consequences of weight stigma include social isolation, stress, negative health behaviors and less frequent medical care. An interprofessional approach is needed to address the complexity of obesity in a way that decreases stigma and promotes physical and emotional wellbeing. The Boston…

In 2020, with the pandemic straining healthcare systems and opioid overdoses at an all-time high, a voice rose from within the Duluth community. There was an established foundation of treatment for patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) within primary care, but local health systems lacked pathways from their emergency departments to the complete support resources available within the community. In response, the Duluth-area OUD Collaborative was formed to address the quadruple aim of improving…

Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Shifting IPE to the Virtual Environment #3

Team based care is the hallmark of the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s recommendation for patient centered medical homes, which inspires quality, cultivates patient engagement, and improves costs. While the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality suggests that team training improves patient care and safety, training often continues to be largely inadequate. The challenge then is how to create opportunities for “teamness” or “collaborative competence” (Earnest, 2016) to occur and…

Clear health communication is essential in the pursuit of the Quadruple Aim. When patients and caregivers understand instructions for navigating health systems and engaging in their care, experience is enriched and outcomes are improved.
