Cultivating Collaboration: Building a Successful Collaborative Care Model in an Academic Health Partnership

 This webinar is part of the Accelerating Initiative Real Stories with Real Impacts: What Worked for Accelerating Initiative Teams Webinar series.

In January 2017, following the closing of the university hospital, Creighton University and Catholic Health Initiatives came together to implement interprofessional education and collaborative practice using the Relative Value Unit (RVU) model at a new ambulatory care teaching center and stand-alone emergency department. The new ambulatory care clinic (ACC) was established on campus to serve primarily refugee and racial minority populations from Southeast Asia, Northern and Eastern African countries. These patients are characterized by high instances of diabetes, asthma, COPD, and heart disease. The interprofessional team at CHI Health’s new clinic, University Campus is a collaboration of multiple disciplines including behavioral health, community workers, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, and social work that works to improve health and connect patients to non-medical social services that were previously outside the scope of clinical work. A significant innovation is the Creighton NexusIPE© team’s foresight to prepare the staff to learn collaboration skills and deal with conflict by engaging them all in conflict resolution training before introducing students to the clinical site.
