Journal of Interprofessional Practice and Collaboration

Volume 3, Issue 2 (2021)

Welcome to the October issue! We have a variety of great articles for you to review and download. Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a chronic condition that robs individuals of their normal activities of daily living. In this descriptive case study, the occupational therapist authors take us through the lived experience of a POTS patient’s activities of daily living and her quality of life. The findings are compelling. Our second article describes one scholar’s time teaching in Bangalore, India at a school of nursing and her experiences while there. This is the second in a trilogy of articles related to her time spent in India. Switching gears, our third article examines time management skills for practicum students. It explores why punctuality and on-time assignment submissions are waning, causing an epidemic of procrastination. Our final article describes a pilot study for a peer-led e-cigarette prevention and advocacy training. The authors examined self-efficacy among participating rural high school participants, post training.

We hope you enjoy this issue.
