This was done by implementing clinical documentation standards, cognitive aids, simulation training, purchase/employment of ultrasound equipment, and feedback to clinical services. The role of interprofessional communication and care coordination between health professionals cannot be understated when considering patient outcomes (Shieh et al., 2015).
