Washington State University College of Nursing

Lisa Day is a Clinical Professor at Washington State University College of Nursing; scholarship focuses on teaching and learning with emphasis on professional identity formation and values-based education. Dr. Day collaborated on a project to develop a process-based course in values clarification and professional identity for beginning nursing students; the course is now taught in four nursing schools in the U.S. and one in Taiwan, and Dr. Day and her colleagues are now working on a similar interprofessional course. She was teaching in the accelerated BSN program and collaborating with colleagues in the Duke University School of Medicine and in the Duke Health System (DUHS) to design interprofessional learning opportunities for RN students. Teaching will expanded to MSN courses that will allow for more interprofessional collaboration and development of on-line teaching skills. Dr. Day enrolled in a program to obtain certification as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner in order to re-enter and stay connected to up-to-date nursing practice in complex, interprofessional clinical environments.

Tufts University Medical School

Lauren Meade is Associate Professor of Medicine at Tufts University Medical School and Director of Clinical Learning and Development for Sound Physicians, a large physician practice across 35 states. She has previously served as Associate Program Director and Director of Faculty Development for Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts. For seventeen years, Dr. Meade had a continuous healing relationship with her primary care patients as part of an integrated interprofessional primary care practice. She has created sustainable patient-centered programs in HIV, transition of care, transgender health, correctional health, substance abuse, and women’s health.

Dr. Meade’s Macy Faculty Scholars project implemented an observation and feedback teaching method for physician trainees related to a safe and effective discharge from the hospital. The discharge behaviors were generated together by patients, nurses and physicians and were implemented in fifteen Internal Medicine programs. Using this intervention, attendings had more confidence in the competence of their trainee for a safe discharge.
