Students will gather in teams to learn about the roles and scopes of practice of their own and other health professionals. Teams will be provided with a case, and will collaborate to develop an interprofessional care management plan and also engage in discussions and debriefs with student peers.
In completing this activity, students will be able to:
- Describe the roles of different health providers;
- Define the difference between roles vs. scope of practices and consider areas of overlap and collaboration;
- Define how different health professional roles are involved with assessment and management;
- Describe how role understanding can support collaboration among team members and benefit the patient/client/family.
