ATSU Origins of the Interprofessional Collaborative Case
The concept and content of this interprofessional case collaboration was developed by A.T Still University’s (ATSU) Office of Interprofessional Education and Collaboration. The foundations of the case come from the National League of Nursing ACES cases, which have been significantly elaborated upon by the ATSU interprofessional design team. ATSU has shared this case collaboration model and case materials with VIPE to support the development, growth and implementation of interprofessional education. For questions regarding the interprofessional cases or the case collaboration model please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The case is designed to reveal the complexity of the healthcare delivery and the need for collaboration between healthcare professionals in order to reach the best health outcomes for clients/patients.
Students will gain a better understanding of how the collaborative competencies: roles and responsibilities, values and ethics, interprofessional communication, and team working, can directly impact the outcome for clients/patients. Through this interdisciplinary collaboration, students will acquire knowledge and attitudes necessary for collaborative, patient-centered practice.
