This book discusses how shared understanding can be integrated into education and practice, ethical implications of and barriers to transdisciplinary professionalism, and the impact of an evolving professional context on patients, students, and others working within the health care system.
The book explores the possibility of whether different professions can come together and whether a dialogue with society on professionalism is possible.
Efforts to improve patient care and population health are traditional tenets of all the health professions, as is a focus on professionalism.
A new professionalism might be a mechanism for achieving improved health outcomes by applying a transdisciplinary professionalism throughout health care and wellness that emphasizes crossdisciplinary responsibilities and accountability.
