Over the past week or two, we’ve received a couple questions from project managers looking for resources on patient experiences with interprofessional care, and any case studies that are available for viewing in the library. We answered back individually (and you’re always welcome to inquire about library resources by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org), but then thought it might be a good idea to blog a few of the answers, in the case of future requests.
One good place to start any interprofessional search would be two literature reviews that we received from Scott Reeves. One is an environmental scan and literature review for all types of collaborative practice settings, and the other reviews solely primary care settings.
One new article that we received as part of the Yukon Territory community that stands out as patient-centred is a case study on diabetes patients. In addition to that article, the entire Patients First project (completed as part of the Interprofessional Network of BC) was focused on providing patient-focussed care and evaluation of patient services. Their final report could prove useful in this area of research.
There may well be more available, and if you come across any items in the library while doing your own searches, please leave them in the comments!
