Getting Real: Nursing Today
January 26, 2016

As the delivery of healthcare evolves to become more interconnected, coordinating care between nurses, pharmacists, physicians, social workers and other disciplines has become increasingly important. In its simplest form, interprofessional collaboration is the practice of approaching patient care from a team-based perspective. According to the World Health Organization, by implementing interprofessional collaboration and learning to work together and respecting one another's perspectives in healthcare, multiple disciplines can work more effectively as a team to help improve patient outcomes.

“Interprofessional collaboration relies on members of different professions working together toward the goal of improving patient outcomes,” said Mary Meyer, RN, MN, Ph.D., APRN, a clinical associate professor and director of the clinical learning laboratory at the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan. Meyer is also on the Advisory Board for the University of Kansas Center for Interprofessional Education and Simulation.
