Shatter the Stigma

 

Substance use disorders are associated with discrimination and social disapproval - more so than any other medical condition. Many patients with Substance Use Disorder (SUD), have a high likelihood of readmission, with the root cause of their healthcare needs unmet. Left untreated, thousands of deaths occur every year, impacting the lives of those around them as well. 

Alleviating stigmas around SUD is not easy. Healthcare professionals play a critical role in providing holistic care that is compassionate to the needs of the patient and the patients' willingness to access a healthcare system that is often judgmental leading to feelings of shame and rejection.

Resiliency in Interprofessional Teamwork

Burnout in healthcare and healthcare education is an epidemic that has been linked to numerous devastating outcomes for learners, professionals, and patients. Many national healthcare organizations have stated that teamwork and mutual support are critical to improving resilience and well-being. Therefore, supporting and building the resiliency and well-being of teams is essential. It benefits not only the individual members of those teams but also those who are served by and engaged with the team.

Additionally, as interprofessional teams are becoming increasingly important in health care delivery, the benefits of interprofessional collaboration are becoming more apparent and can lead to improved morale, decreased burnout, and increased patient safety. The purpose of this virtual IPE small group event is to discuss and reflect on the reciprocal relationship between teamwork and individual/team resiliency. Interprofessional small groups will also discuss team and individual strategies/tools to build resiliency, which is necessary to prevent burnout.

Do No Harm: An Interprofessional Patient Safety Event

Preventable medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S., claiming the lives of over 400,000 patients each year. These numbers underscore the need for patient safety training and education for healthcare professionals. Interprofessional education and practice are critical to patient safety and improved patient care. Additionally, as interprofessional teams are becoming increasingly important in health care delivery, the benefits of interprofessional collaboration are becoming more apparent and can lead to increased patient safety and reduced incidence of medical errors.

Hosted by the TTUHSC Office of Interprofessional Education, the purpose of this virtual interprofessional patient safety event is to highlight the role of team-based care in order to identify and resolve potential medical errors and hazards, discuss root causes in cases of medical error, and practice disclosure of medical errors as a team.
