Please show references for page 1 and page 2

Quality and safety issues in health care have been a focus for many years, and they came into sharp focus with the Institute of Medicine’s 2001 report Crossing the Quality Chasm. The IOM has been calling for interprofessional collaboration and recently suggested that health care professionals be educated together instead of in isolated groups. In this week’s media presentation, Dr. White spoke about the importance of interprofessional collaboration to improve quality and safety. Reflect on the media, Dr. White’s comments, and the readings for this week. Then, consider the following:

What are the barriers and benefits of interprofessional collaboration? How might these barriers be overcome?

How can interprofessional collaboration improve quality, safety, health care outcomes, and patient/ professional satisfaction?

With this in mind: Post a description of your experience with interprofessional collaboration. Determine areas within your place of practice that can be improved through interprofessional collaboration. In your description, address the bulleted questions above.

Reminder: Be sure to support your postings with appropriate references to the Learning Resources.

In this week’s media presentation, Dr. Trautman, Dr. Wakefield, and Ms. Coyle discussed how public policies initiated at the national or state level ultimately influence what occurs at the institutional and local level of nursing practice and health care delivery. Health care policy is usually developed to address either cost, quality, or access to health care. Select one public policy that currently is impacting you and your current practice. Consider the following:

What was the policy designed to address: cost, quality, or access?

Does the policy appear to be achieving its intended results? (What data are you basing your assumption on?)

What have been the effects (adverse or positive) of this policy on the other two drivers?

How is this policy affecting your nursing practice?

To what extent would an ethical or value-based framework guide the development of the policy?
Next, consider a different issue??”something you care personally about or see or experience on a daily basis??”about which you would like to influence a practice change through the policy process.

With this in mind:

Post a description of a public policy that is having an impact on you at the local level. Summarize your analysis of the policy using the bulleted list above as a guide. Then, describe an issue you would like to influence through a change in public policy. Include if, or how you would utilize ethical and value-based frameworks to guide your policy development.

Reminder: Be sure to support your response with appropriate references to the Learning Resources. If you use sources other than the course Learning Resources, please follow APA (American Psychological Association) guidelines and provide a proper citation and reference for each source.
