Mr. Kim—Geriatric Oral Health Curriculum
Use this unfolding case to facilitate the development of a care plan for an
elderly Korean-American man with changing healthcare needs.
This curriculum is intended for health professions students and trainees. It was developed for Advanced Practice Nurse trainees, Physician Assistant students, Dentistry students, Pharmacy students, and Master’s of Social Work students.
To increase knowledge and awareness of interprofessional practice for today’s health professionals.
To provide learners in Advanced Practice with the opportunity to take a lead role as a member of an interprofessional team while discussing an unfolding case.
To develop a patient centered plan of care for an elderly Korean-American man with a history of several chronic diseases, newly onset oral health issues, and changes in cognitive functioning.
The Mr. Kim case centers on an elderly Korean immigrant living in an independent community-based living facility with his wife. He has several chronic diseases and sees multiple providers. He is experiencing severe dental carious lesions as a result of additive xerostomia effects from his multiple medications. This case highlights the challenges of working with non-English-speaking populations and lack of communication across providers.

The overall goal for this session is to increase the awareness and understanding of interprofessional (IP) team-based care by introducing learners in Advanced Practice to the four competency domains of Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC): Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice; Roles/Responsibilities; Interprofessional Communication; and Teams and Teamwork. Upon completion of this activity learners should be able to:
- Place the interest of patients and populations at the center of care while honoring the confidentiality, dignity, privacy and unique culture and values of patients and respecting the expertise of other health care professionals (Domain 1: Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice, competencies #1, #2, #3, and #4).
- Clearly articulate the roles and responsibilities of the health care team and how they work together to provide team based care to patients, families and other health care professionals (Domain 2: Roles/Responsibilities, competencies #1, #4, and #6).
- Recognize how one’s own uniqueness (experience, culture, power) contributes to effective communication, conflict resolution, and positive interprofessional relationships (Domain 3: Interprofessional Communication, competency #7).
- Share accountability with other professions, patients, and communities for outcomes relevant to prevention and health care (Domain 4: Teams and Teamwork, competency #7).
