IPE 6500 Learning from Elder Teachers in Healthcare Teams — 0 credits
This course provides students with clinical experience as a participant in an interprofessional healthcare team. After an initial orientation, students will be assigned to small interprofessional teams assigned to work with an Elder Teacher, a resident from Carondelet Village, under the guidance of an IPE team mentor from Carondelet Village and a faculty mentor from the student’s academic program. Together the team will review the elder teacher’s health status, discuss treatment plans and find new ways to optimize his or her health, independence and vitality.
