HLTH 3105 - Interdisciplinary Perspectives in Healthcare♦


(5 cr.) This course introduces students to a patient-centered interdisciplinary model for healthcare delivery in which individual practitioners collaborate as members of a team. Students examine the benefits of this interdisciplinary approach for patients and providers, focusing on how it can lead to improved outcomes. They also explore and discuss professional challenges and institutional barriers, such as delineation of responsibilities, reimbursement, and licensing. Students gain practical experience with the patient-centered model through the development of a patient case study, a hypothetical interdisciplinary healthcare team, and an appropriate treatment plan. They also consider the benefits of such a model on the future of healthcare. (Prerequisite(s): COMM 1001.)
