The University of Arizona Health Network Interprofessional Chief Resident Immersion Training (IP-CRIT) Program
June, 2012. UA Chief Residents joined together for bonding, training in the care of complex older adults. Targeted to new Chief Residents because of the key role they play in ensuring safe, high quality patient care, providing medical student and resident training, collaborating across disciplines with faculty, residents and staff, and communicating with patients and families, the IP-CRIT program was specifically developed to advance teaching and leadership skills with a unique focus on the care of complex older patients. In collaboration with interprofessional partners within the acute care setting, Chief Residents, Residency Program Directors, faculty from the Colleges of Medicine, Public Health, Pharmacy and Nursing, and quality improvement staff participated in this successful retreat, as did their partners, spouses and children.
