Last Day to Register: 5/31/2024
Instructional Hours: 2.00
Disclosure Statement: SC AHEC has received federal funds from HRSA (Grant #U77HP03019) to assist in the development and implementation of the AHEC Scholars program.
Description: This module contains two sections: Health Humanities - “How Do We Heal Medicine?” and The Nexus. “How Do We Heal Medicine?” is a Ted Talk by surgeon and writer Atul Gawande in which he reflects on the need for “pit crews” or strong teams in health care. In The Nexus, individuals see the potential of the Nexus to align health care redesign and interprofessional education to achieve the Triple Aim of improving the patient experience of care, improving the health of populations and reducing the per capita cost of health care. You will also see how a ‘care and learning team’ of students, community members, and practitioners interact with a patient to ensure that he takes better care of himself and stays out of the emergency room.
