Interprofessional Collaboration

Collaborative practice occurs, according to the World Health Organization, “when multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds provide comprehensive services by working with patients, their families, caregivers and communities to deliver the highest quality of care across settings.”

Interprofessional collaborative models of health-service delivery are critical for improving access to patient-centred health care in Canada.
