Interprofessional Case Discussions

The interprofessional (IP) case discussions (short ICDs) were the very first project SHAPED took on. It started all in November 2020 with the first one taking place in German with an astonishing number of 30 participants! Excited by the success as well as the feedback of the participants, soon after we began to develop a French version as well and have ever since continued to prepare new cases for YOU to solve in an interprofessional team!

ICD coming soon 

We are working on the next ICD. As soon as possible the date will be published and further information will follow concerning the next German ICD. You're invited to fill out the registration-form beneath and we will notify you!

Otherwise, stay tuned! :-)

ICD as part of the curriculum at ZHAW

We had great fun during the ICD at the ZHAW and there were even a few medical and pharmacy students who joined us for an even better interprofessional exchange. 
The students from ZHAW from the fields of nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, health promotion & prevention and midwifery could chose to participate in the ICD as part of their curriculum and the feedback was great as they had a very interesting and fun time. They appreciated it a lot even having medical and pharmacy students present and had a lot of questions for them. 

Recap of latest ICD on 17. October 2023

Our latest online ICD took place on 17. October.
Students from a variety of fields of healthcare came together to help Ms. Sommer to get back on her feet again. Thanks to collaborative teamwork and successful IP communication, they succeeded just in time - congratulations! :-)

Revised ICD - The gynecological case is back
(15th of November 2022)

Have you ever wondered what happens during pregnancy and birth if things don't go quite as planned? 

Well this case was all about a normal pregnancy that suddenly turned into an emergency. We had a lot of interesting discussions in the three ICD groups which we held simultaneously. 

Feedback of some participants concerning the ICD

Revised ICD - The neuro case is back 
(31st of May 2022)

We optimized our very first ICD about a neurological case and held it again in May. 

The case was about Mrs. Marti, who was having breakfast with her husband. Suddenly, her left arm felt very heavy and she felt sick. When she tried to talk to her husband about it, he barely understood a word. She slipped limply on her left side and almost fell out of her chair. Her husband immediately called the emergency service (144). 

In the shock room, the patient was awaited by an interprofessional team consisting of a neurological physician and nursing staff. In the background, pharmacy professionals were standing by. Later on also the radiology technician, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, nutritionist and speech therapist treated Mrs. Marti. 

5th ICD involving chiropractors
(15th of March 2022)

Aside of having to take care of a tram driver with backache and gait insecurity, the participants gained valuable insight to what a chiropractor does in their daily life at work. 

4th ICD from the 5th of October 2021

 a gynecological case:

"Die 34-jährige Frau M., welche sich in ihrer zweiten Schwangerschaft befindet, ist beim Routineuntersuchung in der 39 + 0 Schwangerschaftswoche. Während diesem Untersuch werden  zufälligerweise weitere Schwierigkeiten festgestellt. Jetzt heisst es schnell handeln und gut kommunizieren, sodass Mutter und Kind keine bleibenden Schäden davon tragen oder gar sterben. Nur zusammen könnt ihr Frau M. und ihrem Kind helfen - los geht's!"
