Presenting at the Nexus Summit:

Background:   Interprofessional education (IPE) at our institution extends outside of a typical classroom environment through an annual student-led IP health fair that benefits members of the community who might not have adequate access to health care services. During the health fair, student volunteers from different health professions programs collaborated to provide education regarding common health issues and preventative measures for conditions including hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, and balance deficits. The purpose of this quality assurance study was to assess existing…
At least 6 in 10 adults has one chronic medical condition, with 7/10 deaths attributable to chronic disease, accounting for 1.7 million lives lost each year (CDC). The morbidity and mortality of chronic conditions is attributable to the healthcare provider’s fixation on symptomatic disease management rather than the prevention-based model. This is partly due to the lack of provider training related to coordinated, team-based care that allows for a unified, evidenced-based message delivered to the patients across all healthcare professions. An emerging field, lifestyle medicine (LM), has…
Students matriculate into Physician Assistant (PA) and Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) programs with varied healthcare experience, resulting in the differing levels of confidence during didactic and clinical year phases. A tiered didactic and simulation-based learning opportunity for PA and DPT students was developed with the aim of increasing student confidence around inpatient lines, tubes, and drains and collaboration among disciplines. In turn, the increase in confidence may imply benefits of interprofessional multimodality content delivery between these health professions.First-year PA…
