8th Annual Collaborative Care Summit!

April 5th, 2017

The 2017 Collaborative Summit was held at seven universities in three regions (Wilkes-Barre, Scranton and Williamsport).  In 2017, the summit reached a new milestone with over 1000 participants!  There were 873 students and 141 facilitators present.  A record Twenty-three unique professions were represented at the Summmit!  

Overview.  A introductory presentation was used to clarify how interprofessional education is applied to the real healthcare environment with a focus on the challenges of obesity. This was followed by a video (see below) which was indendended to promote discussion and reflection on the issue. Students then move into their assigned small groups of 8-10 interprofessional students.  Facilitators 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.

“It was a great opportunity for us as future healthcare providers, and I'm grateful we were given the chance to be here!.”

Check out the video which was produced by Dana Manning, PharmD, RD and Judy Kristeller PharmD.  The video was used as a discussion trigger and was shown to summit participants at the start of the program.
