An Interprofessional Geriatric Clinical Skills Fair

The Interprofessional Geriatric Clinical Skills Fair video was a collaborative effort with members from nursing, medicine, pharmacy, occupational and physical therapy.

Clinical skills fairs are a fun, interactive way for student learners to gain practical, evidence-based skills and knowledge pertaining to the care of older adults and provide an ideal setting for collaboration among health professions students. These fairs can serve as an ideal format for introducing geriatric and IPE competencies and should be implemented at more institutions as a way to better realign education with collaborative practice.

Cultural Competency for Healthcare Provider

The growing population of the undocumented, uninsured Latino Immigrants in the United States presents a unique challenge to the health care industry and the Public Health system within the United States.  As with all minorities, there is an increased awareness of diversity and disparities with the health care delivery system.  As a result, free-clinics, staffed by volunteer doctors, nurses, students, social workers, dentists and lawyers are filling the void and providing care to these underserved, vulnerable populations.  Studies have shown that caregivers educated in cultural competency and sensitivity provide better care, decrease disparities and increase positive outcomes (Majumbar, Browne, Roberts & Carpio, 2004).

However, most volunteers/health care professionals are not formally educated in cultural competency and the cultural sensitivities of the populations they are serving.  As a result of the disparities associated with accessing and receiving health care among vulnerable populations, there is a growing recognition among academia for formal cultural competency and sensitivity education/curricula within academic programs for all health care disciplines.
