Multidisciplinary/Multiuniversity Teaching Nursing Home Project.
Cifferri, William B.
This paper describes a new model for teaching nursing homes, which places a strong emphasis on teamwork by combining the resources of a comprehensive retirement community and three universities to train faculty, students, and staff, and to generate research basic to geriatric care. The four organizations involved in the project (Southwestern Ohio Seniors' Services Inc., The University of Cincinnati, Miami University, and Xavier University) are listed and the Multiuniversity/Multidisciplinary model is presented. The rationale for the program is discussed and specific program objectives are outlined. Specific activities of the project are described, including the development of affiliation agreements, faculty development, research team development, and education. Benefits of the program from the perspective of the universities and the nursing home industry are outlined. (JAC)
