Interprofessional Education and Communication in Health Care: Experiences and Challenges in the U.S.A. and Greece
November 20 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Rutgers’ School of Communication and Information and School of Health Professions in collaboration with Democritus University of Thrace are hosting a virtual symposium on Monday, November 20, 2023, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. ET. The following information is from the event webpage:
The need for an interprofessional, coordinated approach to health care systems is a global issue. The World Health Organization defines interprofessional education (IPE) as the learning that “occurs when two or more professions (students, residents, health workers) learn with, about, and from each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes” (WHO, 2010). Democritus University of Thrace and Rutgers experts in IPE, communication, clinical training, and research will be featured at this two-part global e-symposium, titled “Interprofessional Education and Communication in Health Care: Experiences and Challenges in the U.S.A. and Greece.”
In the first session of this e-symposium, panelists from Democritus University of Thrace and Rutgers’ School of Health Professions and School of Communication and Information will discuss recent and enduring research findings on IPE and communication, as well as approaches and best practices for safer patient handoffs in clinical settings, including, for instance, the adoption and implementation of mnemonics such as the SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation).
The second session will address the current challenges of IPE in the United States and Greece.
An interactive discussion between the speakers and the audience will follow each session.
This event is part of an e-symposia series that is a component of a collaboration between Rutgers’ School of Communication and Information and School of Health Professions in the context of the International Academic Partnership Program-Greece (IAPP-Greece), an academic incubator program sponsored in 2020 by the Greek Ministry of Education, the U.S. Department of Education, and the Institute of International Education, among other organizations.
Free and open to the public. Register online in advance to attend.
