Catalyst for Kids Pediatric Program

Catalyst For Kids is a collaborative interdisciplinary project between the Department of Pediatrics at MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio and the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve University. Funded by Partners for Quality Education through the support of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, CFK is a new health professions education model in which we merged the clinical training experiences of pediatric residents, pharmacy residents and nurse practitioner students in the pediatric clinics at MetroHealth Medical Center to teach collaborative interprofessional care in two separate roles: patient-level care (developing collaborative patient plans of care) and system-level care (process improvement of clinical systems).
