Student Run Free Clinic Faculty Association
Showcase Title: Student Run Free Clinics Interprofessional Clinical Practice Sites
Students volunteering in a student-run free clinic have been shown to maintain high attitudes towards working together on interprofessional teams. This environment provides interprofessional teams of student the opportunity to care for underserved patients under the tutelage of interprofessional teams of preceptors. Many models for how this can be done exist all over the country. Recognizing that starting, maintaining, and growing a student-run free clinic is challenging, a group of faculty from these clinics started meeting on an annual basis at the Society of Student Run Free Clinics Annual Conference to share ideas. Out of this grew the Student Run Free Clinic Faculty Association which creates a network of faculty, clinicians and staff involved in student-run free clinics and provides a mechanism to share data and outcomes to improve these clinics. This showcase and consultation kiosk will bring the expertise of the President and PresidentElect of the Association to talk about the tools, tips and resources for starting a new clinic or enhancing one which already exists. We will talk about practical operational issues such as finances and pharmaceuticals and facultyspecific issues of scholarship and promotion. Afterwards we will be available to speak oneonone to interested attendees.
University of Missouri Kansas City
Showcase Title: Fostering Effective Community Partnerships to Develop Team Identity: Lessons Learned from Rural and Urban Practice Partnerships
Participants will discover the importance of fostering current clinical partnerships while developing new relationships prior to embarking on IPE projects, based on lessons learned. Building effect leadership teams while increasing trust and enhancing relationships is essential to the process. Without community clinical practice partnerships, students are unable to fully experience interprofessional training. Many current providers have not experienced formal education on how to work effectively within interprofessional teams. In this project, training was provided to teams of providers, students and staff from the clinics involved, focusing on IPE, incorporating process improvement to address the patient’s behavioral health needs while working to improve the patient’s healthcare outcomes. Teamwork is an essential component to the scheduling and implementation of this training. The benefits of working collaboratively with community stakeholders, fostering interprofessional relationships, focused on improving patient satisfaction, reduction of health care costs, and improving health outcomes in the current NEPQR rural project setting will be discussed.
