Getting Started: Interprofessional teams are part of practice trends we see developing in all aspects of care delivery. Consider you own work environment .
For this assignment, consider the concept of interprofessional teamwork and patient outcomes.
Look to your current workplace as an example.
Apply the components of the iCARE concept to interprofessional teams in a short paper.
iCARE components are:
Evidence-Based Practice (EBP)
How could you contribute to the interprofessional team, the culture of your practice setting, and positive patient outcomes through nursing actions demonstrating compassion, advocacy, resilience, and evidence-based practice?
Select one scholarly nursing article from CINAHL as a resource for your paper.
Additional scholarly sources can be used but are optional.
When searching in the CINAHL database, limit your search word to one component of the paper you wish to emphasize, such as ‘Resilience’. Searching for the term iCARE will not produce the results you need.
