Transforming Interprofessional Partnerships: A New Framework for Nursing and Partnership-Based Healthcare By Riane Eisler, JD, PhD(h), and Teddie M. Potter, PhD, RN, is now available in the Scott Memorial Library 4th Floor book collection: WY 88 E36t 2014
From the publisher:
“Healthcare professionals are experts on healing, but they often lack the necessary tools and guidance to heal the healthcare system, say the authors of a new book published by the Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI).
Transforming Interprofessional Partnerships: A New Framework for Nursing and Partnership-Based Healthcare by Riane Eisler, JD, PhD(h), and Teddie M. Potter, PhD, RN, empowers nurses and healthcare professionals to re-examine the current state of interprofessional collaboration to build a more effective, caring, and sustainable healthcare system.
As the first book written from the nursing perspective about interprofessional teamwork in healthcare, Transforming Interprofessional Partnerships defines and illustrates the full partnership model in practice, education, and research to improve communication and interprofessional collaboration. The book also serves as a template for true partnership-based patient and family-centered care, which empowers patients to take an active role in their healthcare decisions.
The authors advocate for a paradigm shift that will dramatically change — and improve — the nursing field.”
