Creating the Health Care Team of the Future
By

Rating
One way to significantly improve the delivery of health care is to teach the health professionals who provide care to work together, to communicate with each other across professional boundaries, and to start to think and act like a team that has the patient at its center. The team-based care movement is at the heart of major changes in medical education and will become an element in the new accreditation standards. Through its Centre for Interprofessional Education, the pioneering approach in this area taken by the University of Toronto has attracted international attention. The role of the Centre for IPE, a formal partnership between the University of Toronto and the Toronto Academic Health Sciences Network, is to create a hub for the university and the many teaching hospitals where all core parties can be actively engaged in redesigning this new model of health care. In Creating the Health Care Team of the Future, Sioban Nelson, Maria Tassone, and Brian D. Hodges give a brief background of the Toronto Model and provide a step-by-step guide to developing an IPE program.

Reviews

"The real value of this book is as a highly practical guide for those individuals and organizations who are committed to making interprofessional education a reality... In addition to professional educators, leaders of health care systems themselves can learn from this book as they work to transform their structures and cultures to support teamwork around patients at the point of care, ideally reinforcing what new hires are learning in well-designed interprofessional education programs, rather than starting from scratch." - Jody Hoffer Gittel, ILR Reivew (August 2016) "Once again, the educational team from the University of Toronto is providing cutting-edge work. With interprofessional education and care sweeping across the United States, academic programs will be looking for a resource such as this to provide guidance for building their educational models. The quality of this work is outstanding. The authors combine up-to-date IPE scholarship with practical content expertise that will assist educators at they forge new IPE curricula and collaborative care learning opportunities for health profession students and clinicians alike."-Richard D. Kiovsky, Indiana University School of Medicine
