Describing the Nature of Interdisciplinary Collaboration within an Educational Center.
Blumberg, Phyllis; And Others
This paper provides an easy to use methodology describing the composition and setting of interdisciplinary activities within a gerontological education center. For 147 activities, using questionnaires completed by 75 participants, investigators determined the number of people, number of disciplines, number of people per discipline, and the different disciplines that collaborated together. Seventy-three percent of the activities were interdisciplinary. The activities were divided into three categories based on setting (clinical, educational, and clinical/educational) and then analyzed. Information is provided to assist others in conducting similar research. It includes discussion of the characteristics that foster successful interdisciplinary collaboration. Five tables are included. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/SLD)
