AIM:
In health care, no one professional can meet all the patient’s needs and therefore a team approach is required. The purpose of this task is to encourage you to recall, reflect upon and present an example of inter-professional practice from one of your 3rd year clinical placement experiences.
TASK INSTRUCTIONS:
For this task you need to create a 6-7 minute vodcast of your experience of interprofessional practice during one of your 3rd year placements. The inter-professional practice interactions can be identified at any time throughout the patient’s episode of care.
You must discuss how you and your practice partner interacted with two health professionals from the following list:
1. Dietician
2. Medical officer
3. Occupational therapist
4. Pharmacist
5. Physiotherapist/Exercise physiologist
6. Podiatrist
7. Psychologist
8. Social worker
9. Speech therapist
10. Aboriginal Health Practitioner
In your vodcast you must:
1) Introduce your presentation and topic and outlines the patient situation.
2) Outline the roles of two different health professions (from the list above) and describe the contribution that the two health professionals made to inter-professional practice.
3) Discuss how the nurse communicated with both of these health professionals including:
a. Identify the types of information communicated between health professionals.
b. Identify a barrier to effective inter-professional practice and recommend a strategy to overcome this.
4) Provide a short summary of key points at the end of the presentation.
You may like to prepare by:
• Talking to the health professionals about their roles
• Accessing this website for role clarification
Additional information:
• A vodcast is a video that you will create directly using the VoiceThread platform on your laptop or PC: you are required to record yourself speaking. You must not use any other format (eg: MP4 or MP3).
• Please note that the average person speaks at 120-150 words per minute so you will need to prepare approximately 720-840 words for this task.
• You can use first person in your presentation.
• You should use academic language and health specific terminology throughout.
• We recommend that you practice your presentation to ensure you present it within time specifications (your presentation must be between six-seven minutes).
• You may find it useful to utilise the twelve inter-professional threshold learning outcomes (TLOs) for Griffith Health graduates (which are listed on the page following the marking criteria) to support your presentation.
• Refer to the marking criteria when completing your assignment. This will assist you in calculating the weightings of the sections for this presentation.
• Submit electronically to the VoiceThread platform available under the assessment tab in your course.
• You must submit this presentation to be eligible to achieve a passing grade in this course.
Please ensure that you thoroughly and carefully follow the VoiceThread instructions in your preparation and upload of this video.
