NUR 573 - Interprofessional Partnerships
3 credits ( 3 didactic hours )
- None for matriculated students, but course content preceding NUR 573 in the part-time DNP program sequence contains important background material.
- This course is designed to strengthen students’ knowledge and skills in designing, implementing, and evaluating the effects of interprofessional approaches on the health care "team"/microsystem, organizational, and community performance. Students participate in experiential learning activities and synthesize information from a broad interdisciplinary literature base to assess and evaluate challenges and facilitators to interprofessional approaches for person-centered care. The types of educational activities and interventions designed to improve such approaches are explored and analyzed. Students are expected to examine their experiences as interprofessional team members critically and, as leaders in their clinical practice settings and propose interventions to improve person-centered outcomes.
