Kristin H. Gigli, Mary S. Dietrich, Peter I. Buerhaus, Ann F. Minnick; Nurse Practitioners and Interdisciplinary Teams in Pediatric Critical Care. To describe the members of pediatric intensive care unit interdisciplinary provider teams and labor inputs, working conditions, and clinical practice of pediatric intensive care unit nurse practitioners. The nurse practitioner–led interdisciplinary team (IDT) was established to reduce readmissions by optimizing care for a select group of high-risk patients. Two new standards of care were established: weekly IDT meetings leading to implementation of a shared care plan and standard workflows for posthospital visits. The NP collaborates and consults with members of an interdisciplinary team to address issues experienced by clients and within the community and situations that are outside their scope of practice or exceeds their knowledge and/or skill. Orients newly hired nurse practitioners and nurse practitioner students. Active participation in unit based committee. Pediatric intensive care units employed an average of 3 full-time nurse practitioners; the average nurse practitioner-to-patient ratio was 1 to 5. The nurse practitioner will modify the plan of care, as needed, in collaboration with the attending and/or consulting physicians. Investigating models of care contributes to the understanding of how models influence positive patient and organizational outcomes and may change future role implementation. Responses from 97 pediatric intensive care unit medical directors and 59 pediatric intensive care unit nurse practitioners representing 126 institutions were received.

One of the exciting features of the Family Health Team is the opportunity it presents to health providers to work as part of an interdisciplinary practitioner team, which will expand access to services for patients including those who previously may have encountered difficulty finding a regular family physician and a Family Health Team will expand the scope of services available to all patients.
