The need for collaboration has never been greater. The healthcare delivery system faces unprecedented challenges arising from prospective payment, competition in the marketplace, higher patient acuity levels, and a shortage of professional nursing staff. The authors discuss a service-education collaboration model based on adjunct executive appointments of faculty members to healthcare organizations. The authors describe the model, a conceptual framework to guide its development, case studies of its implementation, and a summary of the benefits and risks associated with the initial implementation of the model.
