Consider providing education and information on the competencies for collaborative practice prior to conducting a baseline analysis with team members:

Members of an interprofessional team will generally rate their practice as being collaborative; however, they will not typically understand what that means. Providing education and information on collaborative competencies may allow them to provide a more accurate rating of their status at baseline.

Utilize a methodology/process that allows for critical self/team assessment:

Appreciative Inquiry and Future Search are examples of processes that allow for critical self/team assessment and engagement of all people involved with the client/patient. In the development of an ICP & LE these types of processes serve as an intervention with team members as well as a method of identifying other interventions that will contribute to the development of collaborative practice.

Identify a variety of interventions:

Work with team members, and others as required, to identify education, practice and organizational interventions that will enhance collaborative practice (see definitions in Part II). A range of interventions is required in order to make change.

Engage and actively involve physicians:

Make every effort to involve all the physicians who are members of the team. This may mean adapting meeting schedules (outside of office hours), paying sessional fees, or other accommodations.
