Interprofessional Case Study event a success

Over 260 students from several area universities and healthcare groups recently participated in an Interprofessional Case Study event here. Led by School of Allied Health and Communicative Disorders Chair Sherrill Morris, and School of Health Studies Dietetics Intern Coordinator Nancy Prange, students studied one case, applying interdisciplinary knowledge to develop a treatment course for a patient.

Audiology, dietetics, pharmacy, physical therapy, rehabilitation counseling, nursing, professional counseling, speech-language pathology students collaborated together to discuss how they could collaborate in the treatment of a surviving twin who was born at 23 weeks gestation.  In order to get an idea of the challenges the parents face on a daily basis, teams attempted to balance weekly activities such as work, daily chores, and home maintenance with the intense therapy and medical appointments of a medically fragile infant.
