|Description:||Integrated Care Pathways are a tool used by health professionals to guide evidence-based practice and the interaction between health services, including acute care and primary care. They are also known as clinical pathways, care maps or critical pathways, and detail local structures, systems and time-frames to support the translation of clinical guidelines into protocols.|
Interprofessional Collaboration is defined as the process of developing and maintaining effective interprofessional working relationships with practitioners, patients/clients/ families and communities to improve quality of care. By definition, care pathways are multidisciplinary interventions but we know very little about their impact on interprofessional collaboration and the organisation of care processes. This presentation will interrogate the evidence base regarding the impact of care pathways on interprofessional collaboration and the organisation of care processes.
