Presented on Wednesday, October 28th

The Center of Outpatient Education is an interprofessional program (IP) for Physician, Nurse Practitioner, Nursing, Psychology, Pharmacy, and Social Work trainees at the Cleveland VA Medical Center that is implementing and testing innovative approaches for IP education through a team-based model.  Within the COE, a novel Social Determinants of Health (SDH) interprofessional curriculum is in development that includes didactic sessions and hands-on learning activities.   In light of the challenges of COVID-19, COE faculty and learners have adapted to newer methods in the delivery of education. The success of the sessions on a virtual platform shows that the SDH IP curriculum can be delivered to a wider IP audience.

During this webinar we discussed:

  • Developing a Social Determinants of Health curriculum for an interprofessional program.
  • Adapting a curriculum to COVID-19 restrictions and developing virtual teaching modalities.
  • Lessons learned throughout this process and future directions for developing additional curricular activities.

  • Kimone Lightford, MD
