To further the goal of improving patient safety and quality in health care, three institutions — the Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College, St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Washington University School of Medicine — have created the Center for Interprofessional Education (CIPE) at Washington University Medical Center.
St. Louis College of Pharmacy and Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis are joining forces to find better, safer and more effective ways to use prescription medications to improve health. Researchers from the two institutions are collaborating to create the Center for Clinical Pharmacology. The center’s director will be Evan D. Kharasch, MD, PhD, the Russell D. and Mary B. Shelden Professor of Anesthesiology and professor of biochemistry and molecular biophysics at the School of Medicine.
On Monday, Aug. 25, the following will close because of construction on the Medical Campus: the sidewalk on Duncan Avenue along the garage construction site; one lane of Children’s Place west of Taylor Avenue along the St. Louis College of Pharmacy (STLCOP) garage; and the sidewalk through the center of the STLCOP west of Taylor Avenue to Whelpley Hall.
The surface parking lot on the Medical Center campus at the corner of Taylor and Parkview avenues (C-lot) will close permanently at 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27.
A recent case-study competition organized by the Health Professional Student Leadership Council allowed students from various programs to learn how to collaborate across disciplines to improve patient care. Pictured is Lana Joseph, a doctoral student in audiology, explaining her thoughts on a case to physical therapy student Kelsi Smith while nursing student Stacie Chaffin listens.
