Views of practice owners on intraprofessional cooperation in teams of professionally trained and academic therapists / Sichtweisen von Praxisinhabern/-innen auf die intraprofessionelle Zusammenarbeit in Teams von berufsfachschulisch ausgebildeten und akademisierten Therapeuten/-innen

Abstract

Background

The academisation of the therapy professions occupational therapy, speech therapy and physiotherapy in Germany has created new challenging constellations. Tensions can be seen in the intraprofessional cooperation of professionally qualified employers and academic employees due to identical work contents and equal pay.

Question

How do professionally trained leaders experience the intraprofessional cooperation of professionally trained and academic employees?

Aim

The study describes from the point of view of professionally trained therapists their experiences in their daily work with academic employees in order to derive opportunities, challenges and success factors in intraprofessional cooperation.

Method

A qualitative content analysis with computer support in MAXQDA of n=9 semi-structured focussed interviews from a two-arm cross-sectional study with extern method triangulation is presented. The data are supplemented by n=85 free text entries of two online surveys.

Results

The interviewed leaders welcome academisation because of the promotion of professional stability, social recognition and the advancement of research. In the intradisciplinary cooperation with their academic colleagues there is a predominantly friendly and equal working atmosphere. However, interviewees report a limited creativity of academic employees in practical work, as well as fluctuations with unsatisfying practical commitment due to a low occupational perspective and poor remuneration.

Discussion

While academic employees are eager to expand their practical work, this can only be achieved by providing time and financial resources from practice management. Structural incentives must be provided by more responsibility, extended fields of activity or qualification and performance-related remuneration models in order to retain academic employees in practice.While academic employees are eager to expand their practical work, this can only be achieved by providing time and financial resources from practice management.

Creating an Online Interprofessional Collaborative Team Simulation to Overcome Common Barriers of Interprofessional Education / Eine internetbasierte, interprofessionelle Teamsimulation zur Überwindung organisatorischer Hürden in der interprofessionellen Ausbildung

‘Interprofessional collaboration (IPC) occurs when two or more professions work together to achieve common goals and is often used as a means for solving a variety of problems and complex issues’ Green & Johnson, 2015 , pg.1). IPC practice models are being used in healthcare settings to improve patient care outcomes along with the use of informatics (Health Resources and Services Administration, 2013; World Health Organization (WHO), 2010 ; Cox & Naylor, 2013 ; Health Force Ontario, 2013; Hopkins, 2010 ; Cuff, 2013 ; Manos, 2012 ; Institute of Medicine

Do Polish Accountants Enjoy their Job? Results of a Nationwide Survey “Accountants’ Self-Portrait”

Abstract

The aim of the paper is to examine whether their profession is a source of satisfaction for Polish accountants. The study used the results of a nationwide survey by the accountants association in Poland “2017 accountants’ portrait”. As it results from more than 2,500 responses by accountants, over three quarters of respondents assess their own job satisfaction highly. The image of an accountant satisfied with their job does not match the stereotypical perception of this profession. The respondents’ answers indicate that the level of satisfaction is related to the position held and the remuneration received. The perception of accountants as “generators of additional costs” or “business impediments” is also significant, which can lower satisfaction with working in accounting. The paper employs methods of a source analysis and a diagnostic survey. The data collected in the survey was analysed using simple statistical methods and was appropriately presented.

Supporting evidence-based practice: Changes in service provision and practitioners’ attitudes following EBP Service Centre consultation – a qualitative study / Evidenzbasierte Praxis unterstützen: Veränderungen der Arbeitsweise und der Einstellungen von Ergotherapeuten/-innen durch die Nutzung eines EBP Service Centers - eine qualitative Studie

Introduction Evidence-based practice (EBP) started at the medical school of McMaster University in Canada in the 1970s. Since then, it has spread to all health professions and is now acknowledged worldwide. There are different definitions for EBP, but all acknowledge the integration of the best research evidence with clinical expertise, the patients’ unique values and the circumstances for clinical decisions to best serve the clients (Hoffmann, Bennett, & Del Mar, 2013 ; Law & MacDermid, 2014a ). Law, Pollock, and Stewart (2004 , p.14) defined EBP as ‘ a

GPs, nurses and pharmacists as prescribers in primary care: an exploration using the social identity approach / Hausärzte/-innen, Diplomierte Pflegefachpersonen und Apotheker/-innen als Arzneimittelverschreiber/-innen: eine Exploration mit dem Ansatz der Sozialen Identität

threaten the traditional dominance of medicine within health care ( Weiss, 2011 ). Prescribing is a clear demonstration of clinical autonomy, core to professional identity and dominance of medicine ( Freidson, 1970 ; Freidson, 1985 ; Willis, 2006). Indeed prior to the extension of prescribing rights to other professional groups, prescribing was the activity that demarcated the medical profession from other professional groups ( Britten, 2001 ). With the extension of prescribing, the prized medical activity shifted from prescribing to diagnosis, such that, as noted by
