Sir John's Moustache shines at the Healthcare Teams Challenge

Last month a group of Monash students formed an interprofessional team representing physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing/paramedics, medicine and nutrition and dietetics to participate in the Healthcare Teams Challenge held at QUT, and were awarded the runners up place.

The team, known internally as Sir John's Moustache were very impressive performers on the day and demonstrated the high quality of their interprofessional collaborative skills.

The HealthFusion Team Challenge (HFTC) is a dynamic competitive learning experience designed to educate tomorrow’s health care professionals in collaborative client care.

Working together over several weeks, teams must develop a management plan which reflects best practice for a ‘real’ client with complex needs. They then present that plan to a panel of judges before responding to a range of challenging theoretical, practical and ethical extension questions, all under time conditions. 

The students were brilliant ambassadors for both their respective programs and the university.

Well done again to the team, who were:
Lucy Cussen - Nursing / Paramedic
Naomi Crossley - Occupational Therapy
Vanessa Hillgrove - Nutrition and Dietetics
Jacob Jewson - MedicineAlex Beech - Physiotherapy
