The Miami campus’ Nursing program faculty and the PTA Program Director worked in conjunction to provide the nursing students with an interprofessional experience. Dr. Prysiazny Obispo, PTA Program Director, provided the nursing students with a laboratory experience on patient care skills utilizing resources from both Nursing and PTA programs. This included training on body mechanics, patient turning and positioning, adaptive equipment and assistive devices, transfers, gait patterns, and stair negotiation. These activities are part of an initiative at the Miami campus to promote interprofessional education and foster shared learning resources.
