Students participate in first-ever interprofessional education event for the School of Clinical and Rehabilitation Sciences
The School of Clinical and Rehabilitation Sciences held its first-ever interprofessional education event for its Communication Sciences and Disorders, Physical Therapy, and Physician Assistant programs.
The event was led by Dr. Jessica Maxwell, Assistant Dean, Clinical and Experiential Learning, School of Clinical and Rehabilitation Sciences.
According to Assistant Clinical Professor Dr. Michael Bessette, the students were given components of a case of a man with advanced Parkinson’s disease. They worked together to decide on a new management plan. Each specialty contributed their expertise and recommendations, allowing the students to learn how to work together as a team and learn from the input each specialty provided.
Sheri Kiami, Adam Broughton, Elizabeth Martin, Kristen Morse, and Kristen Allison also helped plan the event with Maxwell and Bessette.
They are planning on making this an annual spring event.
