USD emphasizes Interprofessional training practices during advanced health care demonstration
Following a brief presentation, media are invited to witness one segment of a series of day-long exercises that demonstrate the advanced approach to health care called interprofessional practice. Physicians and nurses will present the demonstrations.
Interprofessionalism is a new concept that has been adopted and is being taught by the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine and the University of South Dakota School of Health Sciences, including the nursing program. Interprofessional practice is an interdisciplinary, team-oriented and patient-centered approach to health care. Health care providers in many health care fields are now being trained to work together to achieve improved outcomes for patients.
“The University of South Dakota is changing the way we prepare nurses and other healthcare providers to better serve the patient,” said Dawn Warren, Ed.D, RN, CNE, USD Dept. of Nursing, Rapid City. “We are doing it differently now, including using an interprofessional approach.”
In the exercise physicians and nurses will demonstrate interprofessional communications and assessment and team-oriented intervention skills on a simulated trauma case. A Mobile Simulation Unit will be used in the demonstration/exercise.
