“In what ways do you interact with other health professionals?”

My interactions with other health professionals have arisen from working in multi-disciplinary settings, both in private practice and as a clinician. The interactions include talking, sending emails, writing notes, creating research partnerships and participating in joint functions like rounds and planning meetings. My interactions are characterized by openness and a willingness to help. I have thus been able to participate in care, research, rounds, conferences, and planning meetings in community health centres, private clinics, and hospitals in Ottawa, Toronto, and Hamilton.
