Social Work Student Interns on the Interprofessional Team: Addressing Social Determinants of Health in Household-centered Clinical Learning Environments
Theme: Quality Interprofessional Education and Accreditation
When we think about the issues of health and healthcare, we traditionally think about biological factors and the role of professions such as medicine and nursing. However, research now indicates the importance of non-biological factors affecting health. The World Health Organization (WHO), in its constitution, defines health as: “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Yet, until recently, the “social” components were often overlooked. These “social determinants of health” as defined by the WHO are the circumstances in…

Unlocking the Patient Experience: The Patient as Part of the Team
Theme: Integrating Patients and Families in Interprofessional Practice and Education
Healthcare is a complex and dynamic industry. It is often disjointed and fragmented as care is provided in a siloed manner. At the center of the healthcare industry, patients and their families often find the healthcare system difficult to navigate in order to effectively manage their own care. Healthcare providers can partner with patients and their families to coordinate care, collaborate on treatment plans and ultimately improve the outcomes for patients and their families. This phenomenon, known as team-based care, enables healthcare providers to come together and partner with patients to…
