Enhancing Performance as Collaborators in Care Presentation

Slide 1

Introduction

  • Hello, everyone. I am Charmaine Kenneth, and I welcome you all to this meeting.
  • Firstly, I would like to acknowledge the presence of our esteemed healthcare professionals in the audience, including nurses, physicians, hospital administrators, nutritionists, physiotherapists, and information technologists.
  • This presentation will focus on the significance of interprofessional collaboration for overweight hypertensive patients. Our multidisciplinary efforts aim to educate these patients about the benefits of adopting a healthier lifestyle.
  • Both lifestyle changes and antihypertensive medications can assist patients with obesity and hypertension. However, research indicates that patients may experience medication side effects within the first six months (Cosimo Marcello et al., 2018). Due to these adverse effects, patients may struggle to adhere to their prescribed medications. Nevertheless, evidence suggests that modifying one’s lifestyle, such as improving diet and engaging in exercise, can lower blood pressure and reduce body weight without adverse effects (Cosimo Marcello et al., 2018). Healthcare providers need to collaborate and develop strategies to educate patients on making healthier lifestyle choices, ultimately helping obese hypertensive patients adopt better habits.

Slide 2

Steps to Improve Inter-professional Collaboration

Overview to Enhance Evidence-based Practice

  • Each day, new discoveries are made that lead to improved treatments and more efficient care methods for patients. New studies offer better techniques and stronger supporting evidence for patient treatment. Researchers continually uncover information that can aid healthcare providers in delivering the best possible care (O’Cathain et al., 2019).
  • The organization should initiate training in relevant areas to enhance evidence-based practice among healthcare professionals. Allowing ample time for healthcare staff to review and implement research findings is also beneficial. Professionals with expertise in evidence-based approaches can serve as mentors and educators for their colleagues (Lafuente et al., 2019). Healthcare leaders should also facilitate access to resources that support the pursuit of evidence-based literature and provide necessary support. This approach to improving evidence-based practices will also enhance inter-professional collaboration in a healthcare setting (Lafuente et al., 2019).

Slide 3

Explanation of the Planning Stages

  • To promote evidence-based practices and enhance inter-professional collaboration, the following steps can be taken:
  • Forming inter-professional teams: Creating inter-professional teams that include nurses, physicians, nutritionists, physiotherapists, hospital administrators, and IT specialists is essential for enhancing collaboration (Frank et al., 2020).
  • Appointing team leaders: Designated leaders will employ strategies supported by robust data. Leaders will also assess whether there is sufficient information to justify a new approach. Data collection will continue so that leaders can evaluate progress and make necessary adjustments (Frank et al., 2020).
  • Regular team meetings: Regular team meetings, led by designated team leaders, will be held to establish goals based on patient needs. Healthcare workers can express their views and preferences in these team meetings, improving interprofessional collaboration. These meetings will facilitate the adoption of innovative strategies to enhance health outcomes, reduce costs, and minimize errors (Frank et al., 2020).

Slide 4

Educational Services and Resources

Educational Methodologies

  • Leveraging Health Information Technology (HIT): Healthcare information technology, such as telehealth, can be utilized by nurses and other team members (Chike-Harris et al., 2021). Telehealth allows healthcare professionals to educate patients about healthier lifestyle choices and monitor their adherence to new healthy habits.
  • Identifying the patient’s preferred learning method: Patients have varying learning styles; therefore, it is essential to determine whether they would benefit more from telehealth or printed materials (Chike-Harris et al., 2021).

  • Tailoring education to the patient’s interests: Patients should recognize the importance of being educated on healthy lifestyle choices. Creating a comfortable environment by engaging the patient in conversation is crucial. While some patients may benefit from in-depth knowledge of their condition, others may prefer a concise checklist covering the essentials (Yen and Leasure, 2019).
  • Consideration of the patient’s abilities and limitations: Identifying any cognitive, emotional, or motor deficits that may hinder the patient’s ability to learn is critical. If a patient has difficulty hearing, visual aids and hands-on approaches may be more effective than verbal explanations (Yen and Leasure, 2019).

Slide 6

Collaborate and Partner with Inter-professional Team Members

Implementation Process

  • Lee and Bae (2018) assert that the Chronic Care Model (CCM) can facilitate improved care coordination. The CCM model assists healthcare professionals in formulating a treatment strategy after conducting comprehensive assessments of patients’ conditions. Patients and physicians can work more effectively to pinpoint issues and find solutions. With the assistance of CCM, healthcare providers and patients can collaboratively set and achieve support goals (Lee and Bae, 2018).
  • The care coordination team should include the patient and their family, the primary care provider, the care coordinator, nutritionists, physiotherapists, and the peer psychologist. These team members should fulfill their respective treatment responsibilities and further provide intervention and follow-up monitoring duties. The most crucial step in managing hypertensive symptoms is to establish a team that delivers comprehensive care tailored to the needs of obese patients with a sense of responsibility (Lee and Bae, 2018). The next step is to design quality management processes and monitor activities. After educating patients, monitoring ongoing operations and evaluating their quality will be essential.

Slide 7

Plans to Collaborate and Partner

  • To facilitate collaboration among team members, I will initially establish a social platform for communication among professionals from various disciplines. Weekly team meetings, brainstorming sessions, or clusters will provide a forum for staff to discuss patients and develop plans for delivering optimal care (Moser et al., 2018).
  • Additionally, we can enhance communication and information sharing by integrating collaboration into routine activities. Consistent staff collaboration is an effective means of fostering a cooperative atmosphere (Schmutz et al., 2019). Therefore, I will implement processes to ensure that all healthcare workers regularly collaborate to achieve their goals.
  • Increased workforce unity, morale, and productivity can result from enhanced face-to-face and virtual information exchange opportunities. Implementing a HIPAA-compliant text messaging platform could facilitate effective staff collaboration (Ganapathy et al., 2020).

Slide 8

Outcomes of the New Process

Results Assessments

  • The OECD has established six criteria for assessing a strategy: relevance, comprehensibility, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability (OECD, 2021). These six factors will enable us to evaluate process outcomes more precisely.

Slide 9

  • Moreover, effective inter-professional collaboration will lead to the achievement of goals for patients with obesity and hypertension. It will contribute to the development of more precise and efficient methods for educating overweight hypertensive patients (Schommer et al., 2018). These effective educational strategies will motivate patients to make healthier dietary and physical activity choices. Through enhanced interprofessional collaboration, healthcare staff will work together, exchange information and ideas, and respect each other’s roles and responsibilities.

Slide 10

Academic Proof

  • Ansa et al. (2020) stated that patients are more likely to receive optimal treatment when healthcare professionals collaborate, respect each other’s expertise, and value each other’s contributions. The authors
    emphasize that a culture of interprofessional collaboration (IPC) is essential due to the increasing prevalence of comorbidities and the complexity of patient care (Ansa et al., 2020). Healthcare organizations can improve efficiency and patient outcomes through collaborative efforts, saving time and costs. Medical errors are minimized, and patient satisfaction is increased as a result of incorporating IPC into healthcare (Ansa et al., 2020).
  • The benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration in family medicine were examined by Arenson and Brandt (2021). As argued by the authors, collaboration among healthcare providers is essential for achieving patient-centered goals and providing patients with the best possible care (Arenson and Brandt, 2021).

Slide 11

Assumptions

  • This assessment assumes that improved health outcomes for individuals with obesity and hypertension can be achieved through collaboration.

Ethical Considerations

  • Patients benefit from inter-professional collaboration due to improved communication and easier access to treatment. However, healthcare providers must always uphold patients’ fundamental ethical principles. Preserving personal information and privacy rights are crucial for healthcare professionals offering team-based care (Varkey, 2021). Respect for the cultural diversity and individual differences that characterize patients and groups is equally important for healthcare teams. Healthcare providers must also place a premium on establishing a relationship of trust with their patients, their families, and their colleagues (Varkey, 2021). Furthermore, all team members should recognize the significance of other healthcare professionals’ cultures, beliefs, roles/responsibilities, and expertise in determining patient outcomes. They should seek to uphold them throughout the collaboration process (Varkey, 2021).

Slide 12

  • One of the cornerstones of medical ethics, autonomy, supports a patient’s right to refuse treatment, as stated by Pirotte and Benson (2021). According to this principle, medical professionals must respect patients’ autonomy by providing them with all the information they need to make informed decisions about their treatment (Pirotte and Benson, 2021). Medical professionals cannot impose their will on overweight or obese patients who want to lower their blood pressure by changing their diet and exercise habits. They can provide them with comprehensive and accurate information, then step back and allow them to make their own decisions (Pirotte and Benson, 2021).

Conclusion

  • Healthcare professionals must collaborate to develop strategies for educating patients about healthy lifestyle choices. Interdisciplinary collaboration will support the creation of more precise and efficient methods for educating overweight hypertensive patients. These effective educational strategies will motivate patients to adopt healthier dietary and physical activity habits. Through enhanced interprofessional collaboration, healthcare staff will work together, exchange information and ideas, and respect each other’s roles and responsibilities.
