Innovative Curricula

The IMH also supports the development of an interprofessional education seminar for health careers students during their UM pharmacy, MSU nursing, and UW medical school clinical rotations. The development of interprofessional education programs promotes a team-based, collaborative style of clinical practice, which is designed to improve communication between disciplines and thereby improve patient care. The IMH has been working on team-based communication in the hospital environment, and has produced education sessions on nurse/physician communication issues, and generational conflicts in the workplace for hospital staff.
