Join the CAIPER Team at the 2017 Nexus Summit!

As the summer temperatures continue to soar in Arizona, the CAIPER team is beginning to look forward to spending a few days in the cooler weather of Minneapolis, at the Nexus Summit 2017 on August 20-23. For us, the Summit represents a time for reconnecting with collaborators and acquaintances from across the country; a time for exploring new ideas, challenges, and opportunities in interprofessional education and practice; and perhaps most fun – a time for reflecting on and sharing the stories of our journey over the previous year!

Here’s a sneak peek at all the sessions and activities we’ll be engaging in, and we hope to see you there!

Leveraging Interprofessional Design Thinking to Improve Education, Healthcare Outcomes and Return on Investment

CAIPER Director Dr. Gerri Lamb is excited to be partnering with Christopher Purdy of SmithGroup JJR, an international architecture, engineering and planning firm, Dr. Lesley Manson of Arizona State University’s College of Health Solutions, and Scott Reeves of The Design School at Arizona State University to share a new four-hour preconference workshop on interprofessional design thinking.

 

Conversation Cafe: Team Optimization

Dr. Lamb will also be facilitating a new Conversation Café focused on Team Optimization. The probing questions addressed by this Café include:

  • What are opportunities and unintended consequences of team optimization? 
  • What are the learning and education issues when creating a new composite of teams?

 

Teamwork Training in Integrated Care: Navigating the Nexus in Real Time

The CAIPER team has also been invited by the Summit committee to give an encore performance of a fun workshop focused on aspects of teamwork training development. We presented Teamwork Training in Integrated Care: Navigating the Nexus in Real Time at the 2016 Summit in collaboration with ASU colleagues Dr. Lesley Manson, Dr. Liz Harrell, and Dr. Glen Nelson. This is the workshop where conference attendees have a chance to see us present in costume, fall down a rabbit hole, and conduct a mad tea party!

Designing Team-Based Development for Sustaining Impactful Academic-Clinical Partnerships

We are also looking forward to presenting a new workshop in collaboration with Lynne Sinclair from the University of Toronto Centre for Interprofessional Education: Designing Team-Based Development for Sustaining Impactful Academic-Clinical Partnerships. This workshop is all about exploring practical strategies for collaboratively planning and designing team development that maximizes return on investment. We will share insights and tips that we gleaned from partnering with Ms. Sinclair and colleagues from the University of Toronto last year to offer an immersive three-day interprofessional learning event to faculty, clinicians, and healthcare administrators across the Phoenix metro area. It was an amazing experience and we can’t wait to tell this story!

CAIPER Faculty Development Lead, Jinnette Senecal, will be at the Nexus Fair along with ASU’s Dr. Steven Crawford, Dr. Robin Bonifas, and Dr. Sandra Mayol-Kreiser to debut a new Open Educational Resource package in the session titled: Preparing Facilitators for Implementation of a Video-Assisted Interprofessional Simulation Event.  This comprehensive facilitation and learning material package was developed in collaboration with an expert team of health professions educators and instructional media specialists.

 

Arizona Nexus

CAIPER is also very excited to highlight a number of our colleagues from across the Arizona Nexus who will be sharing their work:

  • Virtual IPE Rotation: Let’s Meet Online to Discuss Patient Case Araceli Gamboa, an Adolescent with Obesity (McCoy & Jacobson)
  • Integrated Professional Education at Community Health Centers: Training Medical, Dental, Pharmacy and Behavioral Health Professional Students for Collaborative Care (McCoy, Michaelis, Alexander, & Rowen)
  • Leveraging Interprofessional Education to Address Gaps in Meeting Health and Social Services Needs in Independent Subsidized Community Housing (Bonifas)
  • Expansion of the Interprofessional Education Collaborative Core Competency Mapping within the University of Arizona College of Medicine Phoenix's Four-Year Interprofessional Curriculum (Denny & Hartmark-Hill)

The Nexus Summit 2017 is sure to be a great event for learning, sharing and networking to keep pushing forward interprofessional education and practice for better patient care. We hope to see you there!
