Interprofessional Collaboration in health Care and Wellbeing.
AbstractWe know from literature and practice that better interprofessional and interorganisational cooperation has a major impact on the quality of care and can provide an answer to complex problems. The current experience with the drastic and ever changing measures for and by the COVID 19 pandemic shows more than ever that working together is not easy but feasible. It poses specific challenges and challenges us to be innovative and realistic in our search for appropriate approaches in the ever-changing circumstances. It goes without saying that responding to care issues that come our way in ever-changing circumstances requires flexibility, but above all expertise and experience. The project Collaboration works!? project builds on the expertise within the University of Antwerp and very specifically on the IPCIHC-4U project (Interprofessional collaboration in health care for you). In that project, a first scan of interprofessional cooperation was tested in the context of a residential care centre. Collaboration works!? builds on this by extending test pilots (1) for the scan interprofessional cooperation. From these pilots, the partners in this project will spread the knowledge gained and thus help to create additional support (2) for cooperation in education and the professional field. Furthermore, the pilots will be used to analyse whether and in what way the scan can be used sustainably (3) in the field of work.
