ON INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION

Interdisciplinary collaboration involves an awareness that effective 21st century practitioners need to work together, in new and more close ways than in the past to maximize potential benefits of informed team-based care for patients. This includes not only collaborating with health and allied health professionals and those whom some often categorize as non-health professionals such as medical librarians and health information technology specialists, but also with patients in selection of evidence-based therapies, respecting individual/family and cultural preferences.

Interdisciplinary education has potential to promote sensitivity and awareness of the roles of individual health professionals on care teams. I hope this guide proves helpful. Another guide that may be of interest is Continuing Education. It offers links on educational background and credentialing for select health professionals.
