Interprofessional collaboration strategies: A hematology unit case study

Lu Xia, Huixin Wu, Yun Cheng


Interprofessional collaboration is essential to improve patient outcomes in hematology units. We report on the case of a patient with severe aplastic anemia who died after a fall in a hematology unit and explore the events of the case within the context of interprofessional collaboration. Several strategies were taken into consideration suggested by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative Expert Panel. A regular team meeting is helpful for gaining information about patients. Multidisciplinary education can enhance cooperation among medical team members and the use of an interprofessional curriculum at university level is recommended. Team building, interprofessional education, and clinical practice may facilitate health care providers to reach a collaborative level of clinical practice in a more considerate manner, to meet the demands of high quality health care.
