Abstract

Clear professional roles and responsibilities are essential for safe and quality health care. This is especially true when new specialties emerge within existing structures. For example, radiology and imaging nurses bring new patient care expertise; however, they must also be able to navigate pre-existing relationships between radiologists and radiology and imaging technologists. The partnership-based health care model offers radiology and imaging nurses a template to evaluate their organization for old patterns. By challenging hierarchies of domination, nurses can create cultures where effective interprofessional collaborative practice and patient-centered care can thrive.
