Frequently Asked Questions

What is interprofessional collaboration?

Interprofessional collaboration is a process for communication and decision making that enables the separate and shared knowledge and skills of different care providers to synergistically influence the care provided through changed attitudes and behaviors, all the while emphasizing person-centered goals and values (Health Canada, 2010).

What is the Triple Aim?

The Triple Aim is a framework developed by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) that describes an approach to optimizing health system performance. IHI believes that new designs must be developed to simultaneously pursue three dimensions: improving the patient experience of care (including quality and satisfaction), improving the health of populations, and reducing the per capita cost of health care. Some experts add the goal of improving the work life of health care providers, including clinicians and staff, as a fourth goal to create the “Quadruple Aim.”
