Description: This panel, including a student learner from a Midwestern university, will focus on the implementation of an Interprofessional Geriatric Assessment Clinic (IGAC) and its effects on the interprofessional care team. The IGAC brings together students from a variety of professions, including nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and medical residents, to learn from each other and deliver quality patient care. The IGAC aids students learning how to work with medically underserved older adults in a holistic manner. Additionally, a social worker from a local Area Agency on Aging assists the interprofessional team by providing information on community resources and advanced care planning.
Summit Theme: The IGAC is a unique clinical model that facilitates interprofessional education and integrated patient care. This Academic Practice Partnership illustrates the value of community-based interprofessional care delivery. By engaging community agencies, students learn to leverage resources and enhance health promotion and disease prevention interventions.
Application: Research indicates that interprofessional programs, such as Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment Clinics, like the IGAC, are important care delivery models. This presentation will convey the effects such programs have on both students and the community.
Priority: The IGAC impacts Quadruple Aim outcomes by providing information regarding local community resources and cost-effective medical care. This model has the potential to improve the overall health of older adults while simultaneously furthering student learning.
