For this discussion, review the media piece Riverbend City: Interprofessional Collaboration before you respond to this discussion.

All health care fields have one thing in common: they exist to serve the needs of the community. Quite often, it takes the combined efforts of several agencies to bring about a needed change or resolve a potentially harmful situation.

In the media piece, you were asked to select 10 individuals to invite to participate in a roundtable discussion to develop an emergency response plan for Riverbend City. From the list of names you selected, identify your top five and explain your reasons for choosing these individuals. Were there any agencies or organizations not on the list of options that you think should have been represented? If so, why do you believe they should have been included? What could you bring from the point of view of your specialization that would make a unique contribution to this discussion?
