Abstract

Nurses are encountering many opportunities and incentives to engage in interdisciplinary initiatives. The aim of these initiatives, which are sponsored by private foundations, academic institutions, and managed care entities, is to increase the quality and efficiency of health care. Maintaining professional integrity in the midst of interdisciplinary collaboration is complex and warrants close examination. Contextual issues, which include differing values, professionalism, boundary questions, communication, and power, affect the success of interdisciplinary activities.
