With Nurses’ Week just around the corner (May 6-12), it is the perfect time to empower nurses to take an active role in healing a broken health care system.
Published by STTI, Transforming Interprofessional Partnerships: A New Framework for Nursing and Partnership-Based Healthcare is the first book about interprofessional teamwork in health care written exclusively from the nursing perspective. The book aims to empower nurses and healthcare professionals to reexamine the current state of interprofessional collaboration to build a more effective, caring, and sustainable healthcare system.
The authors, Riane Eisler, JD, PhD(h), and Teddie M. Potter, PhD, RN, are each known in their own right. Eisler is the author of The Chalice and the Blade, an international bestseller, and is also founder and president of the Center for Partnership Studies. Potter, a practicing nurse for over 30 years, is a renowned faculty member and leader at the School of Nursing at the University of Minnesota.
Eisler and Potter hope that this book will begin to change the social consciousness and encourage a movement that will invigorate the nursing profession, noting that nursing’s unique contribution to healing has been marginalized for far too long.
