From the Paper:

"In recent years, there has been an emphasis on the need to create collaborative education, training and partnerships in health care. One of the health professions that has recognized the importance of this advocacy are the nursing professionals. The Canadian Nursing Informatics Association (2002) considers this response as an indication of the intimacy the profession with health care and at the same time is an indication of the importance of nursing in health professions. Furthermore, Karuhije (2002) suggests that collaborative nursing enhances perceptions of competence, sensitivity and responsiveness which in turn can enhances confidence of patients for health programs and personnel."
