Teamwork and collaboration are dynamic processes involving healthcare professionals sharing common healthcare goals and working toward a common end in assessing, planning, implementing or evaluating patient care. A focus on type of care and how that care is delivered to patients and their caregivers and family is of utmost importance, and must be delivered by strong inter-professional teams to be effective. The Institute of Medicine has emphasized the key role nurses play not just as members of inter-professional teams, but also as leaders within the team. Discussed will be the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for the nurse in the RN-CCTM role and the team-based best practices for innovative collaboration that result in positive patient care processes and outcomes.
