Preparing and Evaluating Future-ready Interprofessional Health Care Team Members

The ADEA Commission on Change and Innovation in Dental Education (ADEA CCI) 2.0 supports dental educators’ efforts to prepare future-ready graduates poised to collaborate within interprofessional health care teams. Anthony Palatta, D.D.S., Ed.D., et al. further states that to improve patients' oral health, we must ensure our graduates are ready to care about people and their well-being. This webinar will provide teaching and evaluation strategies for assessing person-centered health readiness, including skills in didactic preparation, the use of standardized patient OSCEs, and clinical patient care assessment techniques, such as daily axiUm, competency and video interaction evaluations.
