We know that collaboration breeds better patient outcomes and that a higher standard of care is provided through team practice. The IU TEACH (Team Education Advancing Collaborative Practice) Framework was carefully crafted in order to provide students with the experiences necessary to set them up for success as they move into collaborative team practice after graduation. The IU TEACH Framework stipulates the following Learning Opportunities.
IU Teach Anchors
Grand Rounds engage collaborative interprofessional teams who tackle finding care solutions for complex case studies. We choose case studies that give participants the opportunity to dive deeper into the world of interprofessional practice through integration of new technologies and the application of evidence-based practice.
By collaborating with learners in other specialties, they leverage each other's experience and knowledge to develop deeper understandings of the facets of complex medical cases that may not have occurred to them in isolation.
For more information about how to add enhanced Grand Rounds to your curricula, please contact the Center for information.
Preparing to meet patient needs and provide better outcomes in adverse conditions is necessary for the future success of our students.
The Simulations stipulated by the IU TEACH framework enable learners to apply their knowledge and skills in sequenced learning experiences that simulate real-world practice.
These experiences can simulate emergency medical situations, a variety of stressful code situations, and other times at which interprofessional collaboration can make all the difference. Learners who participate will be more comfortable with similar situations and be able to provide better care and outcomes in their practice.
Electronic Health Records
Ineffective and communication can produce fragmented patient care and poor outcomes. The Center's Electronic Health Records learning opportunities employ case based learning experiences wherein learners use the electronic medical record to communicate across professions identify and articulate issues related to healthcare quality and patient safety.
Participants come away with a firm understanding of how to leverage electronic health records to better serve patient needs.
Clinical/Experiential Interprofessional Collaborative Practice
Clinical and other experiential experiences provide students with the opportunity to apply newly acquired interprofessional competencies in clinics, hospitals, and communities where health and health care happens. These opportunities take place in our clinic as well as in other areas of the Indianpolis community.
