IPEP Case Study: Heart Failure


Target Audience

  • Interprofessionals
  • Registered Nurses


This case study follows Mrs. Jacobs, an 89-year-old woman who is new to the clinic. A social worker has referred her and forwarded on her report from a home evaluation.


The Interprofessional Education and Practice (IPEP) online case studies will prepare healthcare practitioners to effectively and efficiently collaborate in providing quality primary care to adults with chronic conditions.

The IPEP case studies are based on the NYU3T: Teaching, Technology, and Teamwork curriculum funded by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. The NYU3T content was created by NYU School of Medicine and NYU Rory Meyers College of Nursing with Marc M. Triola, M.D., Terry Fulmer, Ph.D., R.N., FAAN, Maja Djukic, Ph.D., R.N. Content is also based on the NYU, John A. Hartford Foundation supported, Geriatrics Interdisciplinary Team Training (GITT) Program.

The IPEP module development is supported by funds from the Division of Nursing (DN), Bureau of Health Workforce (BHW), Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under grant number D09HP25934 and title Advanced Nursing Education.
