The Importance of Interprofessional Partnerships in Nursing

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.

“This shift in paradigms is especially important for the nursing profession, which has for far too long labored under a paradigm in which nursing’s unique contribution to healing has been marginalized,” Potter says.

However, this text has impact far beyond the nursing profession; misconceptions regarding healthcare also affect our global society as a whole. According to the authors, assumptions guiding the healthcare system are not only obstacles to progress; they also have a negative effect on patients’ health and safety.

“Today, we are facing a crucial turning point in our healthcare system,” said Mary Koloroutis, MSN, RN, vice president and senior consultant at Creative Health Care Management. “Eisler and Potter give us the language and inspire the courage to actively deconstruct the old domination paradigm and form the new partnership paradigm.”
The authors hope that this book will begin to change the social consciousness and encourage a movement that will invigorate the nursing profession.

“My hope is that the book can serve as a vanguard to a larger social movement,” Potter says. Eisler adds, “The time for change is now.”
