Abstract

Patients with a multi-layered condition like diabetes can face challenges accessing the full range of healthcare providers who are trained and experienced to ensure that patients receive the care that best meets their individual needs. However, overcoming barriers and leveraging the right array of healthcare providers to cooperatively treat a complicated and prevalent disease state such as diabetes can mean better health maintenance, faster healing and less discomfort for patients, demonstrating the best offerings of interprofessional, collaborative healthcare practice. This paper illustrates various healthcare provider partnerships where the diabetic patient can be optimally served by collaborative care.
