At a recent summit, members of the New England Healthcare Institute (NEHI) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation called for more team-based collaboration in nursing and medical schools, according to a recent article in Healthcare Finance News.

Stakeholders called for nursing and medical schools to work together more often so they can teach team collaboration skills necessary for patient care in the future of healthcare. Erin Mann, health policy associate at NEHI, called for aligning the schedules of medical and nursing schools better, so they can share classes and faculty members can collaborate more.

Leaders of the summit highlighted St. Louis University, the University of Pittsburgh, and the University of Colorado at Denver as leading examples of collaborative programs.
