Realizing Potential: Improving Interdisciplinary Professional/Paraprofessional Health Care Teams in Canada's Northern Aboriginal Communities through Education.
Minore, Bruce; Boone, Margaret
Journal of Interprofessional Care, v16 n2 p139-47 May 2002
To address shortages of health professional human resources and overcome cultural barriers, interdisciplinary health care teams in most northern Canadian aboriginal communities include paraprofessionals recruited locally. This paper identifies factors fundamental to effective team functioning, arguing for an extension of the information on interdisciplinary practice included in health science education programs to address this issue.
