This award will support a patient-centered interprofessional collaborative model of care in the inpatient medicine service. The model, developed and implemented in collaboration with patients and families, makes the patient the center of the team that will create and deliver the care that is best suited to the patient’s needs. The support will assess the collaborative care model and develop materials to orient providers (physicians, nurses, care coordinators, pharmacists, therapists, others) and learners.
