The problems of interprofessional health care practice in the hospital setting

by K Caldwell, A Atwal
British Journal of Nursing ()

Abstract

This article outlines the problems of interprofessional practice in the hospital setting. It examines the difficulties associated with competing ideologies and aims, inequalities in power relations, communication and role confusion and overlap. Within the hospital setting such problems often arise although the roots of the problem may go unacknowledged. The ways in which the problems occur in the hospital setting are considered as is the underlying cause of such problems. Case studies will be used to analyse how the problems arise and ways in which they might be addressed.
