Hospitals Foster Interprofessional Practice to Improve Outcomes - Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation 
Collaboratively working in an interdisciplinary practice holds the potential for improving outcomes and healthcare processes. Some hospitals have brought professionals from different disciplines together for the benefit of patients, and others are embarking on the journey.
We’re all part of the puzzle, and no one piece is more important than the other,” said Jill Wegener, MSN, RN, CCRN, CNO at Blythedale Children’s Hospital, Valhalla, N.Y.
Blythedale Children’s began its path toward greater interdisciplinary practice several years ago. In 2011, the hospital began interdisciplinary training in therapeutic crisis intervention. It has continued the training for new hires, with annual recertification for all staff. . . 
The project, Aligning Education and Practice to Support Interprofessional Collaboration, with funding from The Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation in New York, aims to align academic and healthcare delivery to support interprofessional collaboration. . .
