Project Details


Interprofessional Primary Care Education Interprofessional Primary Care Education The Arizona State University (ASU) College of Nursing and Health Innovation, the University of Arizona (UA) College of Medicine- Phoenix in partnership with ASU, the UA College of Pharmacy - Phoenix, and the Arizona Telemedicine Programs Institute for Advanced Telemedicine and Telehealth propose to collaborate on a two-year planning grant to develop a new innovative integrated interprofessional curriculum to prepare physicians, nurse practitioners and pharmacists, with an emphasis on primary care practice in rural and underserved areas. Our focus will be designing this new curriculum for our three professional degree programs (MD, DNP, and PharmD). An overview of each of these programs is provided in the appendix. Our specific aims are to 1. Identify common content and competencies (knowledge, skills, and attitudes) across the three professions as a foundation for shared courses and planned and regular intersections in classroom and clinical experiences throughout the graduate course of study in each profession. 2. Identify content and competencies to include in our current curriculum that members of the interprofessional planning committee and key stakeholders believe are vital to the future of effective interprofessional practice for delivering primary care services in rural and underserved areas. 3. Develop syllabi and course materials for a set of interprofessional courses and clinical experiences that include planned and regular integration of content and interaction among students within the three graduate programs. 4. Prepare planning briefs that (a) identify lessons learned in developing fully integrated interprofessional graduate-level professional curricula; (b) anticipate key issues and obstacles in implementing these curricula; and (c) recommend strategies for increasing the amount of planned integration in current curricula.
