Co-Designing a Collaborative Academic Professional Practice Model for an Integrated Health System: Sinai Health's Journey.Nurs Leadersh (Tor Ont). 2020 Jun; 33(2):7-20.NL
In the current environment of increasingly complex healthcare needs, evidence-informed practice, stronger partnerships and collaborative foundations with nursing professions, health professions and physicians (referred to as collaborative academic practice) are required to deliver integrated, value-based services across the care continuum. This paper outlines the co-design of a collaborative academic practice model in a recently integrated health system. An overview of key concepts from the literature around professional practice models is provided that lays the foundation for the integrated healthcare system's inaugural collaborative academic practice model.
