  • The HRSA Team Says Farewell

    Tuesday, July 2, 2019

    It is time for the HRSA Team to sadly say goodbye. After four years of working to improve and increase the utilization of interprofesional collaborative practice and teamwork in our hospital's Medical and Surgical units, we bring our projects to conclusion. We saw many changes in our organiztions, personnel, and culture over those three allotted years, plus a No-Cost Extension of one more year. We rose to many challenges and adapted to continue implementing these projects in the name of improving health outcomes and patient-centered care, as well as working conditions for all members of our interprofessional teams. We strived to give voices to those who were previously undervalued and underengaged, including the patients themselves. We are so grateful for the opportunities we had to impact our organizations, and to bridge gaps by building a stronger academic-service partnership. Thank you to all leadership and staff members who supported this grant and its initiatives!
