Systems Theory and Practice Issues

Class, We discussed the importance of the value of a master’s prepared education and patient centered care so far. This week we are analyzing systems structures and interprofessional collaboration. Would you agree that some facilities and/or departments lag behind in ways in which care is delivered? Is there a resistance somewhere within the systems structure? Often we see such a variety in how things are done in different health care settings. Can anyone think of such an example where you’ve seen something done in one place and then visited another to find something different regarding how care is delivered? What are your thoughts on this variance? What is the impact of the systems structures in place?
