Connecting the dots : engaging interprofessional collaboration for quality patient care
MetadataShow full item record
Current trends in healthcare reveal that patient care is becoming more complex, particularly pertaining to discharge planning from acute care hospitals. Prescribed methods, in response to meeting the rise in patient care needs, have emerged and require increased engagements between interprofessional team members and patients alike. A culture of collaboration has become prevalent at global, national, and local levels. However, the world is still learning and discovering what collaboration looks like and what this means to the people involved within its practices and experiences. This Action Research initiative aimed to clarify, at a local level, how one interdisciplinary team defined collaboration and how they might choose to enhance their collaborative practices for quality patient care. One-to-one, Narrative Inquiry interviews cultivated abundant insight and shaped a future vision for practice. Inclusion and connection elevate Interprofessional Collaboration. This team discovered that mindful approaches to patient-focused care, their communication with emphasis to clarifying roles and goals, how they establish and maintain their relationships, while promoting democratic approaches to generating change were the ways to refine their collaborative practices moving forward. When we connect the dots between our individual and collective practice, we create pathways to brighter days.
