An interdisciplinary team of four Academic Health Center students and a faculty advisor will represent the University of Cincinnati this year at the 2014 Clarion National Interprofessional Team Case Competition, held April 11-13 at the University of Minnesota.

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 with masterís degrees in nursing and education.

"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.
