Collaboration between and among physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other clinical and administrative professionals will play an important role in the future of healthcare delivery. Based on findings from a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation project, this presentation will explore practices that promote interprofessional collaboration, describe what makes it possible for them to thrive, and explore how they improve patient-centered care. It will focus on Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s experience building effective interprofessional practice across their organization, including the challenges they have overcome and the benefits they have received.
