This is the first year UC is sending a team. UCís team was organized
through UC Open School and includes College of Medicine students Katie
Talbott and Anas Minkara and James L. Winkle College of Pharmacy
students Melissa Kincaid and Greg Cook.
The teamís faculty advisor is
Valorie Grant, RN, an assistant professor at the College of Nursing

"The competition is a
great opportunity for the students to understand the significance of
inter-professional teamwork and relationships related to patient
outcomes,Ē says Grant.
In the Clarion competition, multidisciplinary
student teams are charged with creating a root cause analysis of a given
case. The team presents its analysis to a panel of interprofessional
judges that evaluates the analysis in the context of real-world
standards of practice.
