Evaluation of an Interprofessional Approach to Providing Care to ICU Survivors and Caregivers
Intensive care unit (ICU) survivors face heightened risk for cognition, social, psychiatric or emotional issues, physical disabilities, and financial stress, and increased risk for further worsening of their health. ICU follow-up clinics and services is a potential mechanism to address the multifaceted unmet needs of ICU survivors. These clinics provide follow-up care to ICU survivors and their caregivers and help them recover and try to keep them from being hospitalized again. Michigan Medicine, Post ICU Longitudinal Survivor Experience (PULSE) clinic was established to aid in that recovery process. The PULSE clinic is one of only a few ICU follow-up clinics in the country. What is unique about the PULSE clinic is the interprofessional approach involving a critical care physician, clinical pharmacist, physical therapist, nurse and social worker in caring for these patients. Our proposed project capitalizes on our established interprofessional PULSE clinic and looks at the impact of this clinic in medication, psychological, physical and cognition management of ICU survivors.

IP-X Research Stimulus Pilot Grants on the effectiveness and efficiency of interprofessional health care on diseases, populations, costs, and/or current practices.
Up to four Classic Cubes ($60K) will be awarded. These cubes are fully funded by the HSC (up to 4 projects). No unit or faculty contribution is required.
For eligibility requirements, use of funds, and details on the application process, read the information provided at the links below:
The HSC seeks innovative, trendsetting and collaborative projects that study the outcomes of interprofessional care on the costs and quality of clinical care, translational efforts in the delivery of clinical care, the management of population health and the prevention of disease. The goals of the pilot grant program are to fund effective interprofessional research teams that formulate a research plan, and collect preliminary data on the effects of a specific interprofessional health intervention.
IP-X Pilot Grants support ideas with transformative potential for improved interprofessional care outcomes and services. Grant ideas should be focused on a disease state or health condition, a specific population, a type of health setting, and/or a specific approach to interprofessional practice. Projects should be innovative inquiries about how multidisciplinary team approaches will lead to subsequent improved patient health outcomes or reduced lower cost as compared to more traditional models of care.
Priority Topics Include:
● Management of chronic or comorbid, high-cost health conditions, such as hypertension, diabetes prevention/management, or other conditions
● Health prevention for underserved communities/populations - including immunizations
● Technology-based interprofessional health interventions
● Implementation of previously tested evidence-based models of interprofessional care in a new setting or with a new population
As part of the shift to the Mcubed Diamond program, IP-X Pilot Grant funding levels will increase from the 2017-18 level of $50,000 per award to $60,000 per award. No match is required!
IP-X Research Stimulus Pilot Grants are intended to provide preliminary data and to lead to external funding applications.
Information Session and Mixer: Nov. 1, 2018, 1:30-4 p.m., Palmer Commons, room 4050 (Great Lakes South Central). Please RSVP here.
Hear reports from the Round 1 funded IP-X projects and meet with deans and faculty from all health sciences schools at U-M Ann Arbor, Flint and Dearborn to discuss similar interests and potential collaboration. We hope to see you there!
