Interdisciplinary collaboration has the capacity to affect both healthcare providers and patients. Research has shown that the lack of communication and collaboration may be responsible for as much as 70% of the adverse events currently reported. The purpose of this article is 2-fold: to examine factors that may influence interdisciplinary collaboration and consequently patient outcomes and to examine the relationship between interdisciplinary collaboration and King's theory of goal attainment as a theory to support the phenomenon of interdisciplinary collaboration.
