Fostering Interprofessional Collaboration

Nurses must collaborate with advocates in health, business, education, city planning, and more to promote well-being for all in the community.

 

The Goal

Good health is the sum of many things, so it takes nurses working with experts in many other fields to strengthen well-being for all.

Nurses, physicians, pharmacists, social workers, and others in health and health care need to coordinate their efforts with each other as well as with those in education, business, transportation, community development, and many other sectors.

Impact

A community whose leaders work together in a systemic way, providing incentives to encourage all industries and sectors to see health as a mutual goal, and provides all who live there more options for healthy living.

A dozen states have or are in the process of creating an interprofessional collaboration practice and/or education model.
