Discussion: Evaluating Interdisciplinary Collaboration Skills
The achievements of an organization are the results of the combined effort of each individual.
Collaboration is a critical component of quality improvement. It is also a central tenet of your endeavors as a scholar-practitioner in this Walden University Masters program. To succeed in your role as a nurse leader-manager it is important to engage in ongoing development of collaborative skills and to help foster a culture that values collaboration.
In Weeks 1 and 2 of this course you analyzed your strengths and considered how to leverage these strengths for effective leadership. In a similar vein this week you evaluate your strengths and areas for growth with regard to interdisciplinary collaboration.
Review the competencies described in the Interprofessional Education Collaborative report and in Chapter 9 of the Hickey and Brosnan text.
As you reflect on the competency statements outlined for each domain think about which ones reflect your strengths. Which competency statements point to areas for growth?
Consider the benefit of working with interdisciplinary teams for addressing quality improvement initiatives.
Conduct a search of the literature and select at least one article that illustrates the benefits of interprofessional collaboration for nurse leader-managers as it relates to improving quality.
Note: Think about a potential connection between the concepts presented throughout this course (i.e. systems-level change quality etc.) and a Practicum Project that you might focus on in NURS 6600. Consider how you might use interprofessional collaboration in your practicum setting.
Post an analysis of your strengths and areas for growth related to interprofessional collaboration competencies. Explain the benefits of interprofessional collaboration for meeting quality improvement goals. Support your response with examples from current literature.
Read a selection of your colleagues responses.
Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days suggesting strategies for developing interprofessional competencies. Support your suggestions with evidence from current literature and personal experience.
