The GOT Care! Project was awarded for 3 year HRSA funding in July 2014 under the Nursing Education, Practice, Quality and Retention (NEPQR) Program-Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP). With this project the UConn School of Nursing provides an innovative opportunity for nursing to display leadership in the development and execution of an IPCP team, based on the established IPCP Competencies from the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (2011). The GOT Care! team includes clinical faculty with geriatric expertise.
This faculty provides opportunities for their students, including undergraduate/pre-licensure and graduate advanced practice nursing students, and students from medicine, dental medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, social work, and public health, to gain critical knowledge and experience in the care of vulnerable older persons, while simultaneously developing highly valuable skills in IPCP. The team of clinical faculty and their students provide outreach to vulnerable older persons with multiple chronic conditions (MCC) and high emergency department use, in an effort to improve specific healthcare outcomes in collaboration with our clinical partner, Middlesex Hospital.
