Interprofessional competencies of students in a geriatric case competition.
This paper presents a valuable activity to teach health professions students - the interprofessional geriatric case competition. This program brought together students from multiple health professions to design and present a comprehensive care plan using a simulated complex geriatric patient case. Student participants demonstrated beginning skills in interprofessional collaboration based on the IPEC competencies. The case competition provides a positive, engaging experience to introduce health professions students to geriatric principles and develop their readiness for collaborative interprofessional practice. The competition could be conducted virtually, providing a supplement to on-site education.
