This article traces the historical concern for building and maintaining effective working relationships between nurses and physicians on behalf of patients.
The author takes the position that compassionate patient care requires collegial and collaborative working relationships both within nursing and between nursing and medicine.
The development and support of such relationships is obligatory on the part of nursing, medicine, and administration.
Selected studies and expert opinion are used to support this position.
Practical and visionary models that guide interprofessional relationships are discussed with a goal of creating organizational structures which are supportive of ethical practice and benefit patients and caregivers.
