The Interprofessional Team Simulation
Part I–Conflict Management in the Interprofessional Team Simulation
Watch the case study video. Here is a summary of the case:
Personnel Involved: Nurse, OT, AT, PT, Health Administrator
Materials: Professional Code of Ethics, Scope of Practice (State = California), moral model of ethical decision-making (please discuss your own professional models as you flesh out your response to this case)
Case Scenario: A newly licensed nurse is delivering massage to a 22-year-old athlete-patient who recently underwent a shoulder reconstruction due to a sport collision-injury. The patient has requested massage to relieve pain. During the delivery of this massage, the physical and occupational therapist arrive to determine course of treatment. Another member of the healthcare team, the athletic trainer, observed surgery and has orders from the surgeon to perform scar tissue massage therapy. All healthcare professionals feel this is in their scope of treatment, how do we proceed? Who is reimbursable? Who should be providing care in this setting? Who needs to get involved, if anyone else?
If professional representation is missing, assign a participant to role play that professional’s role and ethical care guidelines.
The nurse is providing an inappropriate massage that is contraindicated at this stage of the patient’s soft tissue healing. The patient’s insurance has limited post-operative rehabilitation coverage. The PT, OT, and AT feel that each of them should be the rehabilitation discipline managing this patient’s case. Integrate strategies for conflict management of this interprofessional patient scenario to bring this scenario to a patient-centered resolution.
