Making Patient Care Even Better
Friday, April 29th at 10 a.m.
Delivering high quality patient care – it’s a goal every day in the hospitals and clinics that make up OU Medicine. Now, a unique program aims to elevate that care even more.
It’s a project that unites students across health care disciplines to enhance their education, advance care and empower patients. A group of committed faculty and administrators from the OU Colleges of Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, Allied Health, Social Work, and Dentistry work together to provide interprofessional learning opportunities, allowing students to work in teams similar to the healthcare teams in which they will work during clinical practice.
Communication and team-building activities are a primary focus of students’ first semester with the program, helping form the foundation for quality interprofessional care. Students, though from different backgrounds, find common ground and learn to communicate. The program helps participants gain new insights into their role in health care and a new perspective on the roles of other professionals involved in patient care too. Ultimately, the goal is to help ensure safe and effective care for all patients.
To learn more, join us for an OU Medicine Chat this Friday, April 29th at 10 a.m. with Dale Bratzler, D.O., M.P.H., chief quality officer, OU Physicians. And visit the helpful links on this page.
