The interprofessional team members that collaborate to execute patient care can involve numerous different medical personnel; attendings, fellows, residents, nurses, cardiologists, pulmonologist, nephrologist, infectious disease, nurse managers, nurses, aids, lab technicians, dietary, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy, etc. The care of a patient starts from the top and involves anybody who comes into contact with that patient. Collaboration among all these individuals ensures patient safety. The nurses are bedside with the patient all throughout the day and night. However, other individuals come to see the patient for lab draws, bringing trays, maybe doing respiratory treatments, or helping a patient to the bathroom. Each time someone enters the room they lay eyes on the patient. The cooperation from all individuals, ensures a better end result for the patient. Cooperation is the act of working together to get to the same end result. When the interdisciplinary members collaborate together they create a care plan or course of treatment. However, with so many individuals working on one patient case, there can be conflicts or different points of views. As a nurse manager, part of ensuring patient satisfaction and overall patient health is to be able to mitigate certain situations (Duquesne University, 2020). Whether that be nurses who have a conflict with physicians, or nurse-to-nurse care, maybe even the course of treatment or lack thereof. Patient advocacy is always a nurses #1 priority no matter what. Being able to calm the storm between varying levels of medical personnel is a true leadership quality that can impact patient safety and patient outcomes. On the opposite hand, the nurse manager can be a supportive link between team members to ensure collaboration and a smooth course of treatment. A nurse manager provides resources to the team members and acts as a wealth of knowledge for care.

When we collaborate, we work together to deliver high-quality patient-centered care. Whereas collaboration can be done by dividing the workload between team members to solve the problem individually (Ashkenas, 2015).
Collaboration promotes safety by improving communication between health care providers. When we collaborate with people from different specialties this ensures the patient is getting the best quality care from each specialty.
The nurse leader acts as a role model and demonstrates respect and shared values (Galen College of Nursing, 2020). If collaboration has not been started the nurse leader will ensure the patient has an interdisciplinary team to guarantee the patient is receiving all necessary care needed. The nurse leader will set the guidelines and expectations among the team built as well as promote communication between team members (Galen College of Nursing, 2020). As a nurse leader is conflict arises we are to think about what is best for the patient and their families, what their wishes are honor, and respect them. By doing so will ensure the patient is receiving the best care and reminding fellow team members what we are there to do.
