Main description:

Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Practice helps nurse educators develop multidiscipline, team-based learning opportunities for students. Each chapter, coauthored by an interprofessional team, presents a broad perspective on how to create, deliver, and evaluate meaningful interprofessional education and collaborative practice learning opportunities.
This practical book includes the following features to help faculty provide the learning experiences students need to develop effective collaborative practice, which will enhance patient safety and quality care:
  • Exemplars of successful implementation and interprofessional competency frameworks
  • Conceptual models for evaluating outcomes, as well as coverage of evaluation principles
  • Insightful discussions of diverse venues for interprofessional activities, including classroom, simulation, and experiential opportunities 
“Advancing collaboration and teamwork by providing practical wisdom is the goal of this book—a goal that the authors readily achieve.”
