MetadataShow full item record
ABSTRACT:Collaborations to increase capacity for healthcare professionals requires careful planning, open communication, implementation, formative and summative evaluation, and most importantly, sustainability3. International rehabilitation collaborations have additional considerations for teaching cultural competency and healthcare team skills. Interinstitutional collaboration requires a supportive structure of faculty and staff implementing the program. The Office of International Relations for Health Sciences (OIRHS) developed the Creighton Rehabilitation International Summer Program (CRISP) to provide professional rehabilitation education and training for international students. CRISP serves as a framework for the development of additional international healthcare collaborations through understanding the impact on participating students and discussion of the lessons learned over the course of the program.
