Webinar: An Interprofessional Approach to Collaborative Care

December 16, 2021

Collaborative healthcare - otherwise known as interprofessional care - has been consistently shown to be a positive experience for the patient and their health status. Interprofessional teams comprise a number of different primary and allied health care members, each with a unique purpose and contribution, and resulting in improved health care outcome for patients.

Join Kristen Hicks-Roof, PhD, RD, and Hanh Keyburn, DO, FAAP, on Thursday, December 16, 2021, from 2-3 p.m. ET for a webinar focused on the role of the dieitian and physician as valued members of the interprofessional care team. Drs. Roof and Keyburn will review perspectives from both healthcare professions to help you connect the dots on the importance of taking the next step in your involvement in a collaborative team. You will leave the session feeling more comfortable and confident in understanding the varying professional roles, communication strategies, and techniques on how to work more closely with other, integral health professions.
