“Outbreak! A Classroom Simulation Of A Unified Response To A Progressing Epidemic”

Members of the community are invited to “Outbreak! A Classroom Simulation Of A Unified Response To A Progressing Epidemic” Monday, Nov. 16, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. ET.

This webinar will discuss an interprofessional education (IPE) experience that provides students from public health, medicine, pharmacy, nursing and clinical mental health the opportunity to collaborate as members of a unified command response team to a progressing infectious disease outbreak. The speakers will share the competencies, learning objectives, simulation and assessment materials that were developed and used to meet the curriculum goals of multiple health professions disciplines.

This educational activity also provides a unique opportunity for students in clinical mental health counseling to engage interprofessionally in a simulation that encourages the contribution of their knowledge of the effects of trauma and uncertainty on community-level resilience. The activity focuses on population health and community-based practice rather than patient triage and care.

At the completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the rationale and process by which an educational experience was developed to fulfill interprofessional education (IPE) and accreditation competencies for multiple health professions disciplines.
  • Describe assessment tools that may be well suited for community-focused IPE activities.
  • Describe the importance of including clinical mental health counseling students in IPE activities.
