Catalyzing Interprofessional Collaborative Practice in Existing Clinical Teams: Interactive Approaches to Building Teams

Erin Abu-Rish Blakeney, PhD, RN
Debra Liner
Amanda Moore
Mayumi Willgerodt, PhD, MPH

University of Washington

The need to accelerate integration of interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) approaches into clinical settings is increasingly recognized as an essential nexus for healthcare practice transformation. The University of Washington has been working with heart failure (HF) care teams since 2014 to improve communication and patient care through introduction of IPCP team strategies (e.g., structured IP bedside rounding, TeamSTEPPS communication training, change team formation). Innovative interactive strategies (known as “Liberating Structures” (LS’s)) have proved invaluable in helping IP clinical teams collectively identify practice improvement goals, increase shared knowledge of team members’ roles and perspectives, and promote positive relationships and culture change within teams. LS approaches facilitate break down of hierarchy and engagement from all participants. In this workshop the University of Washington team will: 1) share how they have used interactive LS approaches with existing IP clinical teams and 2) invite workshop participants to engage and experience in the same types of activities.
