AIHC Webinar Series: An Empirically Developed Toolkit to Diagnose and Improve Interprofessional Collaboration and Patient/Family Member Involvement in Intensive Care Settings

Overview: This webinar aims to present the development and contents of the Enhancing Interprofessional Collaboration in the Intensive Care Unit (EIC-ICU) toolkit based on a two-year, multi-sited ethnographic study of eight intensive care settings across North America. Specifically, the study involved over 1,000 hours of observation of interprofessional working practices and over 100 interviews with intensive care clinicians, patients and family members. The webinar will present the diagnostic and intervention elements of the toolkit as well as discuss its potential application in intensive care settings to improve quality and safety issues related to interprofessional collaboration and patient/family involvement.
