Global Interdisciplinary Collaboration to Create Evidence-Based Practice Environments
Learning Objective #1: The learner will be able to identify key leverage areas in today’s healthcare environment to invite an interdisciplinary collaborative approach to implement evidence-based practice
Learning Objective #2: The learner will be able to describe successful strategies for global interdisciplinary collaborative efforts to create and sustain evidence-based tools at the point-of-care.
This session will focus on trends in today’s global healthcare environment that create key leverage points for interdisciplinary collaboration and evidence-based practice. The presenters will share how a growing international healthcare consortium has created global collaborative approaches in creating a common clinical framework that supports practice and content interoperability that is critical to healthcare technology and patient and clinician safety. The framework is grounded in integrated scopes of practice and a wealth of evidence-based clinical tools and resources to support learning and work environments that are intentionally designed to keep both clinicians and patients safe. A key focus of this session will focus on the nature of the relationships between nurses, physicians, respiratory care practitioner, physical therapists, and other disciplines and how one discipline alone cannot be accountable for creating and sustaining evidence-based practice in healthcare settings. We will explore the role of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and linkage to evidence-based order sets, as well as shared evidence-based clinical documentation amongst all team members that is patient focused. Examples of innovative interdisciplinary team approaches to national safety initiatives, such as IHI 100,000 Lives Campaign or Canadian Patient Safety Institute’s Safer Healthcare Now! will be shared because of a collective commitment to integrated care. Lastly, the session will share efforts to transform healthcare education and practice by a global collaborative effort, Technology Informatics Guiding Education Reform (TIGER) across multiple organizations and industry thought leaders in practice, education and technology that is now being sponsored by the Institute of Medicine (IOM).
