Abstract

Interdisciplinary collaboration has the capacity to affect both healthcare providers and patients. Research has shown that the lack of communication and collaboration may be responsible for as much as 70% of the adverse events currently reported. The purpose of this article is 2-fold: to examine factors that may influence interdisciplinary collaboration and consequently patient outcomes and to examine the relationship between interdisciplinary collaboration and King's theory of goal attainment as a theory to support the phenomenon of interdisciplinary collaboration.
