Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)


In the case of Mr. Sinclair, any proponent of interprofessional collaborative practice could identify lapses in team performance. Failures in communication prevented crucial information from reaching the appropriate health professionals. Some members of the hospital staff may not have fully understood the scope of their and their colleagues' roles. Fellow patients exhibited more respect for Mr. Sinclair's dignity than the clinicians who encountered Mr. Sinclair.
