ATSU hosts third annual interprofessional education competitionPosted: November 18, 2014
Students from A.T. Still University (ATSU) and area universities came together on November 3 and 8 in Missouri and Arizona for the annual Interprofessional Education Collaborative Case Competition (IPE-CCC).
The competition provides health professions students with an interprofessional teamwork experience to gain insight into collaborative practice competencies. Additionally, IPE-CCC reveals the complexity of healthcare delivery and the need for collaboration between healthcare professionals in order to reach the best health outcomes for clients and patients.
Students from ATSU, Arizona School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Arizona State University (ASU), Arizona Summit Law School, Grand Canyon University, and Truman State University, worked collaboratively for six weeks building an interprofessional team to care for a hypothetical patient and their family. At the end of the process, they presented their findings and recommendations for enhanced collaboration to a panel of judges representing leaders from various disciplines within the healthcare programs.
The William McKinney Award was presented to first-place teams on both the Arizona and Missouri Campus. The Dr. William McKinney Award, made possible by O.T. Wendel, PhD, senior vice president for ATSU university strategic initiatives, is a living tribute to Dr. McKinney, who is considered the founding father of biomedical ultrasound. Dr. McKinney inspired Dr. Wendel to go on to pursue a graduate health degree in pharmacology and served as a mentor and motivator to him throughout his education.
On the Missouri Campus, the first place Dr. William McKinney Award was presented to Jessica Stevens, communication disorders student at Truman State University; Austin Stephenson, athletic training student at Truman State University; Anna Wang, health sciences student at Truman State University; Ashley Anderson, D1; and Molly Roberts, nursing student at Truman State University.
On the Arizona Campus, the first place award went to Vy Vy Vu, D1; David Bunzell, nursing student at Grand Canyon University; Ecila Barnett, social work student at ASU; and Daniel Schweibert, law student at Arizona Summit Law School.
Second and third place teams were also recognized for their presentations.
