What is the Case Competition all about?
Issues of quality and patient safety in health care have received national attention since a report released by the Institute of Medicine in 1999 indicated that as many as 98,000 people in America may die each year due to medical errors. With a lack of communication being cited as one possible cause of these errors, interprofessional education has come to the forefront of health care curricula everywhere.
CLARION is a University of Minnesota student organization dedicated to improving health care through interprofessional collaboration. Since 2002, CLARION has hosted the U of M local student case competition for health professional students, enabling them to achieve a 360-degree perspective on patient safety in today's health care system and how it might be improved. Student teams, consisting of four students, comprised of at least two disciplines, are given a case and are charged with creating a root cause analysis. The team presents their analysis to a panel of interprofessional judges that evaluates their analysis in the context of real world standards of practice. CLARION expanded the competition to the national level in 2005.
