Interdisciplinary Care Teams 

Teamwork brings people with varying knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes together to achieve a mutually agreed-upon goal. In the case of interdisciplinary care teams, the goal is to provide the best possible care to older adults and people with disabilities. This course explains what makes an effective team member, looks at stages that teams go through, and ways to address team conflict. Throughout the courses there are examples of team problem solving and how teams come up with solutions as they develop care plans.

Assessment with Older Adults and Persons with Disabilities

With this course you will learn how to determine the long-term living needs of older people and other adults of any age who have functional disabilities and want to live in the community, either at home or in some other residential setting. More and more states are now developing community-based support programs aimed at this diverse population. The course looks at assessment as a process where practitioners work in partnership with consumers to understand what is required to meet his or her goals for independent living.  It includes information on the physical, mental, emotional, familial, and social conditions that might be acting as barriers to realizing those hopes and goals and how to work to address those barriers to create a person centered plan.

A Foundation in Ethics, Critical Thinking, and Problem Solving

This course will focus on basic ethical principles including autonomy, beneficence, non-malfeasance, and justice. It will also discuss informed consent, capacity, competence, and confidentiality. You will have the opportunity to work through common practice situations using the ethical principles you have learned.

Managing Medications during Care Transitions
