... American Psychological Association What is transdisciplinary professionalism? For the purposes of the Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professional Education workshop, it has been defined as "an approach to creating and carrying out a shared social contract that ensures multiple health disciplines, working in concert, are worthy of the trust of patients and the public." In an effort to promote a shared understanding, this paper provides a broad-brush review of some of the terminology related to the concept of transdisciplinary professionalism.

... This term may convey more depth of mutual involvement among the professions than the word "interdisciplinary," but it also could exclude members of the health care team not labeled "professionals." However, because the focus of the Global Forum is on health professional education, we believe it will suffice. The term "interprofessional practice" is the current terminology for "two or more professions working together as a team with a common purpose, commitment and mutual respect" (Freeth et al., 2005)
From page 73...
... Rather than conceptualizing professionalism totally within the silos of the professions, efforts have been made to articulate elements of professionalism that are uniquely relevant to collaboration across the health professions. The term "interprofessional professionalism" refers to the "consistent demonstration of core values evidenced by professionals working together, aspiring to and wisely applying principles of, altruism and caring, excellence, ethics, respect, communication, account­ bility to a achieve optimal health and wellness in individuals and communities" (Stern, FIGURE II-1 Professionalism.

... . Proponents of interprofessional professionalism warn that, given the increased complexity of health care, siloed approaches to professionalism may actually undermine safety and quality as well as patient/family/­ community centeredness, as was described by workshop speaker Jody Frost.
