Overview. A keynote presentation was intended to clarify how interprofessional education is applied to the real healthcare environment. This was followed by a short-case video in which a standardized patient experiences chronic debiliation from Huntington's Disease. Students then move into their assigned small groups of 8-10 interprofessional students. Facilitator are used to guide discussion of the case from presentation to discharge. Students are encouraged to communicate their personal experiences as it relates to the case, professional roles and responsibilities, and examine the affective domain of thinking about what the client and family are feeling. Finally, students return to a common area for the closing summary and debrief.
