Interview Summary
Summarize your interview in this section. Be sure to relate concise information about:
• the health care organization that was discussed in the interview.
• the interviewee’s role and duties.
• the relevant issues at the organization.
• any relevant comments on the actions taken by the organization or leadership previously and their effectiveness.
• the organizational culture related to collaboration.
• any relevant collaboration or interdisciplinary team experience you interviewee has had.
The goal of this section is to convey what was discussed at the interview and identify an issue to pursue throughout the rest of this assessment (and future assessments in this course), as well as have enough information to relate theories, strategies, and approaches to the situation at the organization.
Issue Identification
Identify the issue from the interview for which you consider an evidence-based interdisciplinary approach appropriate. Provide one or more specific reasons why an interdisciplinary approach would be appropriate for the issue.
Change Theories That Could Lead to an Interdisciplinary Solution
For this section, look to the literature and describe one or more change theories that would help to develop an interdisciplinary solution to the identified issue. Also, you should briefly note the relevance and credibility of the sources that you cite.
Another way to think through this section is:
• What is the change theory?
• How could it help create an interdisciplinary solution?
• How relevant is the theory to the specific identified issue?
• How credible is the source?
Leadership Strategies That Could Lead to an Interdisciplinary Solution
This section is similar to the previous one, except you will be looking to the literature to help you describe one or more leadership strategy that would help you develop an interdisciplinary solution to the identified issue. Also, you should briefly note the relevance and credibility of the sources that you cite.
Another way to think through this section is:
• What is the leadership strategy?
• How could it help create an interdisciplinary solution?
• How relevant is the strategy to the specific identified issue?
• How credible is the source?
Collaboration Approaches for Interdisciplinary Teams
Again, this section will be similar to the previous once, except that the focus will be on collaboration approaches. Depending on whether or not your interviewee’s organization uses interdisciplinary teams frequently, your focus in this section may be on how to establish interdisciplinary teams and a collaborative foundation or how to improve the collaboration within an already established teams. You should also briefly note the relevance and credibility of the sources that you cite.
Another way to think through this section is:
• What is the leadership approach?
