Darkside of Collaboration - Part 3

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) is a practice that has clearly established links to improved patient outcomes. Yet in spite of these benefits, many professionals (and students in professional programs) have lamented over inefficiency and lack of time for collaboration in explanations of why IPC isn’t always practical. This begs the question—if IPC is such a well-supported practice, why is there still resistance? This study outlines survey results from graduate-level rehabilitative medicine students focusing on negative experiences of IPC. The results indicate that perceived lack of efficacy, poor communication, and unaddressed power differentials each play a contributing role in discouraging student professionals from collaborating interprofessionally.
