The Veterans Affairs Administration has taken the lead in transforming health care delivery away from an acute, inpatient model towards a preventative care primary care focus.
One important aspect of this transformation has been a systemic effort to break down the “silos” in traditional uniprofessional care delivery.
A new article in the Journal for Nurse Pracitioners outlines the structure of a primary care interprofessional nurse fellowship for advanced practice nurses.
The fellowship is a 1-year post-graduate training program. During this time, fellows focus on four core domains: shared decision making, interprofessional collaboration, performance improvement, and sustained relationships.
