Goal and Impact
When experts work in teams, people have more and better options for good care. 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 other industries for the good of all. When community leaders make well-being a mutual goal, people thrive.
Action Coalitions working to further interprofessional collaboration include Colorado, with a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration to implement interprofessional practice teams at community health centers; Hawaii, which is building an interprofessional workforce database; and Virginia, which partnered with the Medical Society of Virginia Foundation to implement a pilot clinical leadership program that encourages pairings between nurses and other providers. A dozen states have or are in the process of creating an interprofessional collaboration practice and/or education model.
