"…At a time when the world is facing a shortage of health workers, policymakers are looking for innovative strategies that can help them develop policy and programmes to bolster the global health workforce.
The Framework highlights the current status of interprofessional collaboration around the world, identifies the mechanisms that shape successful collaborative teamwork and outlines a series of action items that policymakers can apply within their local health system.
The goal of the Framework is to provide strategies and ideas that will help health policymakers implement the elements of interprofessional education and collaborative practice that will be most beneficial in their own jurisdiction….”
