INQRI and IFN Agree: Interdisciplinary Collaboration is Vital

The INQRI program completely agrees with the Initiative on the Future of Nursing (IFN) committee’s assertion that “nurses should be full partners, with physicians and other health professionals, in redesigning health care in the United States.” In fact, the concept of interdisciplinary collaboration is central to INQRI’s mission. Since its inception, INQRI has only funded applicants who would apply diverse perspectives and methodological techniques to answer questions without sacrificing the relevance and insights provided by clinicians. Each of our research teams is led by two co-investigators, one a scholar from nursing and one a scholar from another discipline.
