Interprofessional student care and treatment planning for the patient-centred outpatient care of the future
The project "Inter-Planning" is a project funded by the "Stiftung Innovation in der Hochschullehre" (Foundation for Innovation in Higher Education) to promote interprofessional cooperation and care. This project is led by the Institute for General Practice and Family Medicine of the Charité. Our institute is a cooperation partner.
Current social developments place great demands on the medicine and care of the future. The proportion of older people in Berlin and Germany will continue to increase. This leads to a fundamental change in medical and nursing needs from a focus on acute problems to long-term care for chronically ill patients. The complex problems of chronically ill patients also mean that good interprofessional cooperation will be urgently needed.
The project Inter-Planning addresses this problem and will prepare students for their professional future from this winter semester (2022/23). It offers nursing, medical and dental students the opportunity to come into intensive contact with fellow students from other professions through joint work on real patients and thus to learn how to deal with complex patients and to reflect on themselves and their own role.
Since the winter semester (2022/23), the project Inter-Planning has been implemented step by step as a cooperation between the study programmes Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing. The students get together in interprofessional groups and discuss their own expectations and goals in advance. In a further step, a practical day takes place in the nursing home. The students jointly develop care and treatment plans for two residents. The results are then presented and discussed with the nursing staff, dentists and general practitioners. There are plans to extend this to other courses of study such as pharmacy, social work, physiotherapy and nursing therapy, following the Norwegian model.
