Abstract:
Continuous quality improvement of care and services in health sector is a constant preoccupation. This evaluation study compares four cross-sectional dimensions of quality: interdisciplinary synergy, effectiveness, impact and efficiency of a classic clinical care method (CCC), and a collaborative multidisciplinary care pathway (CMCP) designed for women who have had an hysterectomy. The non probabilistic sample was composed of 127 women, where 37 (Cohort 1) went through the CCC, 47 (Cohort 2) experienced the CMCP within the first six months after its implementation and 43 (Cohort 3) experienced the CMCP between the seventh to the twelfth month of being carried out. A sample of 39 patients' clinical files from the CMCP participants were randomly examined in order to document health care personnel commitment in the new process of care. Five instruments and four indicators were used to collect data at six different instances during the perioperative experience. The results reveal that CMCP achieves substantial improvements at different levels. A larger number of CMCP patients were able to leave the hospital on the 3rd postop day. The patients also confirmed that they were more prepared, more self confident with their care, and had a high level of satisfaction with the health care received. The health care team cohesion was strengthened through the experience. The interdisciplinary collaborative practice can improve the quality of health care and services.
