Pourtant, nous savons peu sur la manière dont la pratique collaborative est effectuée dans les institutions / unités de soins.

Contenu et objectifdu travail de recherche

Pour comprendre la pratique collaborative interprofessionnelle dans les soins, nous avons découpé l'étude en trois phases. Au  cours de la première phase, des entretiens, des focus groupes et des questionnaires seront réalisés avec des praticiens formateurs dans des institutions de soin francophones, germanophones et italophones. Les objectifs visés seront (a) d’identifier le cadre clinique dans lequel les pratiques collaboratives ont lieu régulièrement et (b) de décrire les pratiques collaboratives telles qu’elles sont perçues par ces acteurs-clés.. Sur la base de l’analyse de cette première phase du projet, 40 patients / clients dans quatre ou cinq institutions Suisses seront filmés lors de situations de collaborations interprofessionnelles. Nous avons planifié d’inclure des professionnels avec différents niveaux d’expérience (étudiants,novices, experts) pour voir comment les participants de ces différentes catégories gèrent les exigences de la pratique collaborative et pour identifier quelles ressources interactives (verbale, corporelle) ceux-ci déploient. L'analyse se fera au travers de l'analyse conversationnelle. La troisième phase de notre étude inclut des interventions de transfert de connaissances visant tant le cadre de la pratique professionnelle que la formation.

contexte scientifique et social du projet de recherche

Le projet relève de la recherche appliquée. L’objectif de cette étude est d’investiguer où, quand et comment les praticiens collaborent les uns avec les autres dans les interventions cliniques auprès des patients. Les résultats de ce projet aideront à comprendre en quoi consiste la collaboration interprofessionnelle dans le contexte des soins et à identifier les compétences interactives particulières exigées pour la réussite de sa réalisation.

Abstract

Introduction : Collaboration in health care has become increasingly important. There is some evidence with regard to the way interdisciplinary meetings and team work take place and how this collaborative work is accomplished in healthcare settings. Yet, we know very little about in what institutions/contexts interprofessional collaboration is performed regularly and how health care professionals interact with each other in collaborative situations when direct patient care needs to be provided. The objective of this study is to investigate where, when and how clinicians collaborate with each other within clinical patient care.Methods: In the first phase of the study, interviews, focus groups and questionnaires with clinicians in French-, German- and Italian-speaking institutions and coordinators for clinical placements at the Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences (HES-SO, BFH, ZHAW, SUPSI) will be undertaken (a) to identify clinical settings in which collaborative practices take place on a regular basis (e.g. rehabilitation hospitals, long- term paediatric institutions), and (b) to characterise collaborative practices as perceived by these key stakeholders. Interviews and focus groups will be analysed using qualitative content analysis. Based on the analysis generated by this first phase of the investigation, 40 patients/clients in four or five institutions will be video-recorded in situations of interprofessional collaborative practice. We plan to include professionals with various levels of experience (students, novices, experts) in order to see how participants from different categories deal with the requirements of collaborative practice, and to identify what verbal and embodied resources they deploy in interactions. Transcription and analysis of video-recordings will be performed using Conversation Analysis. Conversation Analysis sheds light onto processes, rather than on the outcome of interactions. The third phase of our study includes knowledge transfer interventions targeting both professional practice settings and educational settings (workshops, educational interventions).Expected results: The results of this project will help understand what interprofessional collaborative practice consists of in the context of healthcare, and identify the particular interactive skills required for their successful accomplishment. Theories will then be developed based on empirical findings and integrated into pre- and postgraduate educational health context.
