NECPA IPEC Collaborative Care Summit - 2017

Facilitator Page

Thank you again for Agreeing to be a facilitator at the Collaborative Care Summit.  This page will provide all the information you will need to make this a successful event.  As noted in our email communication to you, a brief orientation will occur before the start of the summit.  You will be directed where to go for the orientation when you arrive. 

The student learning objectives for the summit are to:

  1. Consider and discuss the individual perspectives and interests of patients struggling with obesity.

  2. Discuss the role of bias and stereotype as it applies to health care for patients with obesity. 

  3. Discuss the impact of obesity on individual and population health and the role of healthcare professionals on improving the health of patients with obesity and communities.

  4. Discuss how different patients and healthcare professionals approach issues from their own perspectives and the importance of the individual roles and responsibilities in forming a collaborative team that provides comprehensive and patient-centered care.  

  5. Discuss the importance of communication and collaboration across health disciplines in order to clarify responsibilities, integrate clinical evidence, and provide coordinated care.  

  6. Identify challenges and opportunities in communicating with patients and across health disciplines in a way that is clear, respectful, sensitive, diplomatic and understandable.
