These leading diseases are all linked--- COPD increases the risk of cardiovascular disease and lung cancer by two-fold or more, while lung cancer and cardiovascular disease are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in patients with COPD. This project aimed to develop an interprofessional annual wellness visit…
Introduction Sex as a biological variable has an impact on anatomy and physiology, symptoms, diagnosis, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic responses to treatment, and health outcomes. Gender as a sociocultural variable impacts risk factors for disease. Most preclinical and clinical research studies still do not adequately represent females/women; disaggregate, analyze and report data by sex; or account for gender influences. These variables have not been incorporated systematically…
Background:Women living with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) represent the minority (22%) of the population specific to the injury (National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, 2013). While most health professions are familiar with the changes in strength and sensation below the site of injury (Anjum et al., 2020), individuals diagnosed with SCI experience a diverse set of chronic conditions, such as depression, urinary tract infections, and osteoporosis (Sezer et al., 2015). An…

Climate change is a public health crisis that exacerbates health issues and inequalities. Health professionals have the responsibility to understand climate-related health effects. Though climate change poses one of the biggest threats to health, most health students have not received formalized education on its health effects. Student-led initiatives may be integral in addressing the present gaps in knowledge. Bridges to Access (B2A) is an annual, free, student-led, interdisciplinary…
Background:Social and behavioral factors intersect with chronic health challenges, which are increasingly complex and multifactorial. Addressing these challenges requires interprofessional collaborations. Creative approaches are needed to prepare students for the realities of practice. Activities should be designed to prepare future healthcare providers, support development of competencies that cultivate ethical relationships, shared values, team building, professional interactions,…
Preparing students to work in complex healthcare environments calls for educational innovations to prepare for a collaborative workforce. In educational settings, health profession students are expected to learn from each other through interprofessional education (IPE) initiatives. To provide this education, agencies like the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC), recommend including outcome-based goals to assess the learner on attaining interprofessional competencies established…
Background: CO-TEACH is a compact telehealth curriculum delivered to 36 interprofessional students across ten health professions from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill during the 2020-21 academic year. Student leaders and faculty collaborators from both universities partnered to create this novel curriculum. Course objectives included conducting effective, multidisciplinary telehealth consultations and recognizing issues of access and equity in telehealth…
