Connecting with Communities of Color: Panel Discussion
February 28, 5-7pm
St Louis College of Pharmacy, ARB 222
People of color continue to face significant health disparities in utilization and access to care in the United States. As healthcare practitioners, it is necessary to be informed and to work to strengthen the skills that allow us to build connectivity with the patients we serve. This panel discussion will provide all attendees with information and tools to enhance their understanding of the need to provide culturally-aware patient-centered care to reduce disparities and increase access, quality, and utilization of care for patients of color.

Curricular Activity: Standardized Patient Team Experience
April 13th
This session is a hands-on experience with multiple healthcare professions (medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy and physical therapy). Students practice novel ways a healthcare team can function in order to effectively and efficiently care for a hospitalized patient/client. Interprofessional student teams determine how to work together to take a history and physical and develop a care plan for a standardized patient; the experience is then debriefed by an interprofessional faculty team. The goal for this session is to develop an integrated, interprofessional treatment plan that reflects the roles and strengths of each member of the care team as well as the needs of the patient, and to become more aware of communication strategies that promote teamwork.
