The interdependence of education and practice has complex effects on patient outcomes. The challenge is to sustain interprofessional partnerships while also seeking opportunities to impact the communities where we live and work.

Profile

Interprofessional collaboration and practice change the nature of care and education. My experiences with teams in oncology, orthopedics and long term care have brought me insights into the philosophies and structures that support interprofessional teams, whether at the bedside or in the “classroom.” I am interested in such things as the organizational culture, the student experience of success, professional development, mentorship, and leadership. The pandemic is a chance for reflection on how we are with each other and how we deliver health and education.
