Professionals working together with shared decision-making, open communication, and mutual trust are among the goals outlined in the Collaborative Practice in Nursing document from Alberta’s nursing regulators.

The regulators, the College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta (CARNA), the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA), and the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of Alberta (CRPNA) hope the document aids nurses in better “understanding their contribution to collaborative nursing practice”.

Improved patient care and positive intraprofessional relationships are expected as nurses incorporate the principles into their practice, including client-centred care, role clarity, trust and respect, effective communication, and shared decision-making and collaborative leadership.
