The increasing complexity of care for older people in nursing homes demands an optimization in collaboration between healthcare workers, patients and informal caregivers. This project aims to enhance interprofessional collaboration (IPC) in the long term care (LTC) and geriatric rehabilitation (GR).
Currently we are conducting a systematic review with the primary aim to identify the facilitators and barriers of IPC in LTC and GR settings. A secondary aim is to provide an overview of instruments used to assess IPC in the LTC and GR.
The following steps, we will: 1) do a qualitative study on IPC in nursing homes during daily practice, 2) do an intervention study to enhance IPC in nursing homes, and 3) formulate recommendations on how to optimize IPC in nursing homes.
