What is the Inter-Professional Model of Patient Care©?
“The Ottawa Hospital Inter-Professional Model of Patient Care© (TOH IPMPC©) is a guide to organize the delivery of patient care among health professionals from different disciplines, taking into account their competencies, collaborative patient-centered practice and the hospital’s strategic directions” 
Created by patients and their health-care providers, TOH IPMPC© is unique in its flexibility to be implemented hospital-wide across diverse teams.
A “Team” is a group of professionals from different disciplines that work together regularly to provide care to a specific patient population.
“Interprofessional care is the provision of comprehensive health services to patients by multiple health caregivers, who work collaboratively to deliver quality care within and across settings”.
We are grateful for the financial support from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (MoHLTC) for the implementation of this inter-professional care initiative.
Also, we thank HealthForceOntario and the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities for the grant we received to implement educational support for TOH IPMPC©.
