Health & Human Enrichment Cluster


This cluster project request is to pilot an interdisciplinary web-based case as a class assignment in SW 3050 Perspectives on Aging (WEC0) with 30 students during the spring 2017 semester. The intent is to use information gathered from this pilot to develop a larger web-based case project (Phase II) to assess interprofessional competencies of students from Athletic Training, Nursing, Counseling, Social Work and Communication. This project is an adaptation of the Interprofessional Education (IPE) Web-based Case developed at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) which has been used to educate students in the health professions since 2012. VCU’s virtual case focused on eight years in the life (ages 79-86) of a woman with complex geriatric needs. This pilot will focus on a brief geriatric case.
