The interprofessional student-led clinic: Supporting older people after discharge from acute hospital admissions

Funding acknowledgment CMW_2015 This project implemented an entry-level and interprofessional student-led clinic at Peninsula Health Community Rehabilitation Centre, delivering services to recently discharged (acute) aged patients in the Mornington Peninsula CPN. Attendance consisted of mixed-discipline teams of two to four final-year students from dietetics, medicine, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physiotherapy, podiatry, psychology, social work and speech pathology (78 students in total); these teams were supervised by two educators. After conducting a gap analysis, the project sought to address a service delivery and workforce need within the CPN and investigate the viability and sustainability of student-led clinics, in addition to providing clinical placement opportunities to students.
