Series/Report no.:Outreach Scholarship Conference (6th : 2006 : Ohio State University)
Presenters: Sharon Flinn (Assistant Professor of Occupational Therapy, The Ohio State University), Anne Kloos (Clinical Assistant Professor in Allied Medicine, The Ohio State University), Katie Clark (R.N., Columbus Medical Association’s Physician Free Clinic). Abstract: The authors will share their experiences in developing an interdisciplinary service-learning course in a community health care setting. Occupational and physical therapy students are exposed to activities not experienced in the curriculum, such as interacting with culturally diverse patient clientele, carrying out health promotion activities, and learning how to screen for common mental health disorders. The challenges and strategies for developing this interdisciplinary course will be presented. Qualitative and quantitative findings from student evaluations will be discussed, and suggestions for future programs will be highlighted.
