Multiple Chronic Conditions Education and Training Repository

The Multiple Chronic Conditions (MCC) Education and Training Repository is a searchable online database of nearly 70 education resources. The repository advances Goal 3 of the HHS MCC Strategic Framework which is to provide better tools and information to health care, public health and social services workers who deliver care to people living with MCC. The resources included in this database are funded by government agencies, academic institutions and health care organizations that support health professionals and other health care disciplines in their efforts to deliver quality care to people living with MCC that is patient-centered and collaborative across disciplines. The selected resources were identified from an environmental scan of the literature, publicly-available websites, a Technical Expert Workgroup and key health care experts. Learn more about how the resources were identified for inclusion in this database. (PDF)

Please note: This database is not an exhaustive list of all education and training resources in the public and private sectors. Rather, the database includes resources specifically focused on caring for people living with MCC. Furthermore the inclusion of identified resources does not constitute an endorsement from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

RN shares observations and her role in care, and behavioral health, social work and pharmacy staff provide input.

Description:

This 90-minute module is designed for small groups of twelve first-year students drawn from multiple health professions programs, making the interdisciplinary experience genuine. The primary activity is a simulated interdisciplinary team (IDT) meeting where students are assigned roles of different health professionals on the IDT or roles of family members. The meeting goal is to prioritize residential placement options for an elderly couple, Mr. and Mrs. Cooper, following Mrs. Cooper’s discharge from a skilled nursing facility. Nine health professionals are introduced with regard to roles/responsibilities and training (Dietitian, Geriatrician, Pharmacist, Physical Therapist, Physician Assistant, Registered Nurse, Rehabilitation Counselor, Social Worker and Study Coordinator). Session activities are linked to selected competencies for interprofessional collaborative practice as defined by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative.
