Eastside Science Café: "Interprofessional Collaboration: Working Together To Improve Patient Safety"

"Interprofessional Collaboration: Working Together To Improve Patient Safety"
Monday, January 12, 2014 - 7 p.m. - Wilde Rover

High functioning healthcare teams produce better patient outcomes at a more efficient cost; however, health professional students (e.g. nurses, physicians, pharmacists) are currently educated and trained without the opportunity to practice as a member of a team. This talk with Brenda K Zierler, Ph.D., RN UW, School of Nursing will discuss national initiatives requiring a different approach to educate health professionals, competencies they must meet prior to graduation, and the rationale for team-based care. Local examples of how UW students are being trained differently will be presented.
