Establishing a Transdisciplinary Professionalism for Health

Date: May 14-15, 2013

Resource: Institute of Medicine

 

Description: Efforts to improve patient care and population health are traditional tenets of all the health professions, as is a focus on professionalism. But in a time of rapidly changing environments and evolving technologies, health professionals and those who train them are being challenged to work outside their comfort zones, often in teams. Today a “new professionalism” is needed that applies throughout health care and wellness and that emphasizes cross-disciplinary responsibilities and accountability to achieve improved outcomes. This need has prompted consideration of developing a “transdisciplinary professionalism”—defined as an approach to creating and carrying out a shared social contract that ensures multiple health disciplines, working in concert, are worthy of the trust of patients and the public. It is within this context that the Institute of Medicine’s Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education is holding a public workshop on “Establishing Transdisciplinary Professionalism for Health.”
