Interprofessional Curriculum of Care for Older Adults (iCCOA)
Flourish, a Geriatric Workforce Enhancement Program (GWEP), is a project funded by HRSA to develop and evaluate an interdisciplinary geriatric curriculum for medical, nursing, social work, pharmacy, dentistry, and law students, fellows and residents. Other learners include professional health care workers, community organizers, peer mentors and frontline workers.
The goals of this project include educating a healthcare workforce that can meet the needs of the rural older adults by integrating geriatrics with primary care, maximizing patient and family engagement, and transforming the rural healthcare system. As a part of this project, a Curriculum for the Care of Older Adults (iCCOA) has been developed by faculty at the University of Louisville Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Social Work and Law.
iCCOA Curriculum Components
1. On-line didactic modules. The modules expose the learner to an interprofessional approach to providing health care. Addressing social determinants of health is a primary approach to achieving health equity. The content is intended to expose the learner to many areas of care, not just medical.
3. Clinical Rotation/Shadowing with Critical Reflective Writing assignment. Guidelines are provided for the informal 2-3 page paper. Critical Reflection Debriefing is a face-to-face/teleconferenced 1-hour session scheduled before or after the ICME session.
