“Collaborative practice happens when multiple health workers from different professional backgrounds work together with patients, families, caregivers, and communities to deliver the highest quality of care. It allows health workers to engage any individual whose skills can help achieve local health goals.”
- World Health Organization 2010
Teamwork is a vital component of quality and safety in health care. At USF Health, we are continuously integrating capacities to add high quality to all that we do. We encourage our faculty and health care partners to continue to transform the way they practice together, blazing new paths in value-based care. We believe by preparing for the future of health care collectively; we can deliver more specialized care and access for our patients, families, and communities, more innovative education for our students, and contribute more knowledge to translational research. This tight partnership among our faculty and partners across disciplines of diverse backgrounds, interests, and experiences ultimately yields better health outcomes. It is this comprehensive approach that characterizes an academic health system dedicated to making life better together.
