We will showcase and describe a model for implementing IPE across the institution by presenting our four step process, giving participants an opportunity to explore how strategies might be applied in their own institutions.   Step 1 The Office of Interprofessional Curriculum (OIPC) teamed with the Center for…

Introduction: Every year in the United States, more than 5.7 million patients are admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU), of which 25-50% develop ICU-acquired weakness (ICU-AW), defined as new onset weakness that occurs during critical illness. Patients with ICU-AW have worse outcomes including increased mortality, longer hospitalizations, worse quality of life years after they leave the ICU, and greater healthcare costs. Early mobilization is a low-risk strategy associated with…

Integrated collaborations among diverse providers within the intensive care unit can mitigate the challenges and experiences of health disparities among patients, their families and the provider teams that support them under medical duress.

These stressful and anxious experiences can be amplified if they arise from any…

With pressures to improve hospital efficiency, reduce length of stay and decrease readmissions, effective communication among care teams is more important than ever.

There is still a need to increase the ability of primary care providers to care for the needs of all patients, especially the ones with special needs and address the social determinants of oral health. Action is needed by primary care providers to expand access to…
