Our team worked interprofessionally to manage a case of long-covid via a telemedicine approach. This presentation highlights our experiences working as a team via zoom to manage our patients migraines and access to care concerns. Overall, we each learned a lot about what each of our professions could bring to the table, and worked as a team to find the best approach for our patient.

Social Determinants of Health Month: A Collaboration of Interprofessional Education on Care for Future Patients
Julienne Mumpini, Kathryn Lannon, Elisabelle Bocal, Austeja Subaciute, and Sarah Kelley
Throughout the month of October, various student groups will host guest lecturers, student and physician panels, and alternative opportunities for the UNE community to learn about factors impacting health. During SDoHM, students and community members will explore conditions in which people live, grow, work, learn, practice religion, and age that impact individual health, while also learning about systems of oppression that perpetuate those conditions and disparities in healthcare. The events will encourage participants to think about how we might affect positive change in our communities and in our future patient populations. Furthermore, throughout SDoHM, students will be provided resources and virtual learning opportunities about the intersections of healthcare and social injustice, environmental racism, and disenfranchisement, underrepresentation, and discrimination in medicine. Lastly, students will be able to participate in fundraisers and drives which will benefit our community and provide essential resources. This project was created in the hopes that the UNE community would engage in discussions that are difficult but necessary. We also hope that through conversations, reflections, learning (and some un-learning), UNE community members can make a commitment to accessible, diverse, inclusive, and equitable health and wellness.

This poster aimed to explore themes related to our experiences working on an interprofessional team treating a patient with long haul COVID-19 via telehealth. We gathered information from the literature as well as past OT/PT student experiences during IPTI to gain a better understanding of the roles and responsibilities of therapy on an interprofessional team and any biases or misperceptions that exist.

Research has shown that the first two weeks following reentry, an individual with substance use disorder (otherwise known as SUD) is 129 times more likely to overdose than the general public. This project, Partnerships in Harm Reduction: Campus to Community Engagement was an opportunity to introduce multidisciplinary health care students and future providers to the realities, challenges, and stigma that is commonly faced by individuals with SUD within the criminal justice system to raise awareness, educate, and emphasize the importance of providing quality services to support successful reentry.

This semester we were part of the PHIT program which was an interprofessional program where we collaborated to create a patient case in order to explore how the social determinants of health and various factors can impact a patient. We were team number 1 in this course.

Research poster detailing the results of interprofessional case collaboration simulation. During the simulation, an interprofessional team learns to pivot their recommendations to best serve a patient who is reluctant to use traditional medical interventions. Physical therapy, osteopathic medicine, and nutrition recommendations were stressed in the care plan for this patient in search of a more "natural approach" to treating her long covid symptoms.

Our study focuses on the social implications and role of healthcare accessibility in the treatment of Long-Haul COVID-19, specifically in the rural setting. Referred to as Long COVID, this chronic condition broadly covers a variety of symptoms experienced by those long after the initial recovery from acute sickness with COVID-19; and it is now recognized with an ICD-10 code classification. Anecdotal evidence shows a lack of social support, empathy, and resources available for individuals suffering from Long COVID in rural areas. Based on a multi-disciplinary standardized patient experience, the project focuses on social needs requiring intervention and the manner in which different scopes of medical professionals can target these issues.

This presentation focuses on an interprofessional collaborative service-learning project involving a team of Nursing and Social Work students from the University of New England. Teamwork, dedication, and collaboration between students and faculty enabled the creation of fifteen no-sew fleece blankets with accompanying laminated note cards that included inspirational messages as well as a list of community resources to support individuals in need. Blanket packages were delivered to Preble Street donation center, then distributed to the marginalized communities within Portland, Maine. This service-learning opportunity aimed to immerse us in the community to provide valuable support while promoting emotional, physical, and mental health.
