Learning about patient and client care together.
When you or a loved one are sick or injured, you seek the best team of healthcare professionals to help you recover. Within the healthcare profession quality care comes as a result of cohesive teamwork. Interprofessional teams enhance the quality of patient care, lower costs, decrease patients' length of stay, and reduce medical errors. As a part of Boise State’s College of Health Sciences Interprofessional Education Initiative, we provide numerous opportunities for our students to practice interprofessional collaboration and effective teamwork so that they are better prepared to practice patient-centered care of the highest quality after graduation.
Interprofessional collaboration is an educational method where students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable teamwork and ultimately improve health outcomes for their patients.
By practicing interprofessional collaboration from the beginning of their education, students are able to learn how to perform in an interprofessional team and translate these critical qualities into caring for their future patients with a higher quality of care. Through your support, we can provide our students with the opportunities and tools necessary to be healthcare professionals that drive excellence, industry standards, and teamwork.
