Interprofessional learning in residential aged care: providing optimal care for residents.

Aust J Prim Health; 21(3): 360-4, 2015.
Artículo en Inglés | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-25102943
Since 2010, a residential aged care provider has been in collaboration with universities in Western Australia to deliver an interprofessional education (IPE) program in residential aged care facilities. The program takes place within a residential aged care setting where university student placements from seven disciplines are integrated into a dynamic interdisciplinary team approach for care delivery. This approach provides the opportunity for two or more professionals to learn together to provide optimal care for residents. In 2012, an extensive research evaluation was performed to demonstrate, among other outcomes, the benefits to the residents and staff involved in the program. Residents, family members and staff from a residential aged care facility were invited to participate in the mixed methods evaluation. The qualitative aspects were digitally recorded, transcribed and thematically analysed. SPSS (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL, USA) was used to analyse the quantitative data. All were exceptionally satisfied with the IPE program.
