Creating a Culture for Interdisciplinary Collaborative Professional Practice

C.A. Orchard, EdD, V. Curran, PhD, S. Kabene, PhD

Abstract: The future of the health system is dependent on health

professionals re-tooling the way we practice together. No longer can a

multi-disciplinary model support the complex health needs of many clients

nor can any one-health profession have all the knowledge needed to provide

total patient-centred care. However, our current education and health

systems are structured around a multi-disciplinary model of practice with

physicians or nurse practitioners as decision-makers and rarely are

clients included in care planning.True interdisciplinary practice is

defined as a partnership between a team of health professionals and a

client in a participa! tory, collaborative and coordinated approach to

shared decision-making around health issues,requires a revamping of how

future health professionals are educated and how the system can

accommodate shared decision-making. A client-centered collaborative

professional practice model is proposed in this paper as a means for

fostering and facilitating the culture for this change.
