'Grand Rounds' program Thursday will explore interprofessional collaboration in health care


Ohio University’s College of Health Sciences and Professions (CHSP) and Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OU-HCOM) are partnering on a program Thursday that will expose their students to the team-based approach to health care that they are likely to face in their professional careers.

The two-hour program is titled “Grand Rounds: An Adolescent with a Spinal Cord Injury.” It will be streamed live online on Thursday, Oct. 20, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at: www.ohio.edu/mediaserver/live.cfm?videoid=56c9daC24d2B

During the two-hour presentation, five speakers representing health disciplines within the two colleges will explore the implications of treating a spinal cord injury to a fictitious 16-year-old player during a southeast Ohio high school football game.

These Grand Rounds speakers will guide the group of gathered students through pre-hospital management, emergency room and hospital care, child-family issues, psychosocial intervention and long-term patient rehabilitation. At the end of the program, students will have about 20 minutes to ask questions of the panel of presenters.

The program was the result of professional collaborations within CHSP on the Interprofessional Education Committee, which has invited a sampling of students from both colleges to the presentation. The program will take place in the Walter Hall Rotunda, but since all seats for the live presentation have been reserved, those interested in viewing the program are encouraged to tune in to the web stream.
