Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


Written primarily for undergraduates in nursing degree and diploma programs at Canadian universities and colleges, but also suited for students pursuing an education in allied health or the helping professions, Interprofessional Health Care Practice lays the theoretical foundation and presents models of practice to provide collaborative patient-centered care.


This resource's goal is to equip future health providers with an understanding that two or more practitioners, patients and their families, and communities must develop interprofessional working relationships and work as a team with a common purpose, commitment, and mutual respect.
