808 Words4 Pages
Interprofessional Interview Paper As the delivery of care becomes more complex, the need to coordinate care among physicians, nurses, pharmacists, social workers, and others becomes ever more important. In the face of increasingly complex health issues, several institutions have proposed inter-professional education (IPE) as a way to improve teamwork among health professionals and move health systems from fragmentation to collaboration, with the goal of improving health outcomes (Schmitt, Blue, Aschenbrener & Viggiano, 2011). This key competency also has been included in the accreditation standards for pharmacy, medicine, nursing, and dentistry. Additionally, core competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice were developed to provide tools to prepare future health professions for interprofessional, team-based, and patient-centered care (American Association of Colleges of Nursing [AACN] 2012). These collaborative competencies connects to the five core competencies identified by the Institute of Medicine and are instrumental in working effectively with other health professions, patients, and families (Bethea, Holland & Reddick, 2014).
In response to improved quality and safety, the Quality Safety Education in Nursing (QSEN) created graduate level competencies to address the challenges and assure that nurses have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes (KSA) necessary to continuously improve the quality and safety of the healthcare system (AACN , 2012).
