Abstract

Contemporary clinical work involves the collaboration of different health care practitioners to provide safe, effective, and high quality services. Yet practitioner collaboration is often fraught with political, professional and ideological divergences. For these reasons opportunities for health care practitioners to come together and develop a shared meaning of practice is often constrained by organizational and professional agendas. The methodology reported on here has allowed health care practitioners to critically engage with their own practice, and the practice of their colleagues, in a way that enables them to negotiate and mitigate their differences and divergent opinions and practices. Through the use of video reflexive methods health care practitioners were able to articulate systematizing or 'meta discursive' solutions to address previously taken-as-given organizational and clinical (handover) practices.
