Promoting Team-Based Interprofessional Care for Community Dwelling Older Adults with Chronic Disorders

The University of Pittsburgh’s School of Nursing leveraged strong community partnerships to develop a new Nexus for geriatrics care and workforce development. The InterProfessional Education Exchange Program (iPEEP), accelerates students’ skills and preparation for providing team-based geriatric care. Education emphasized social determinants of health for older adults in urban and rural areas. Leaders of a rural primary care practice and two urban geriatric home care programs joined the University as equal partners in this effort. As professionals steeped in the geriatrics field, the University faculty and community-based practitioners not only taught and precepted students, but invited them into a tightly-knit professional network of geriatrics practitioners in the Pittsburgh area.
