Health services in the current global period require health care workers to provide quality services. Collaboration between professionals in a health service system is very essential to provide quality services. However, interprofessional collaboration (IPC) remains uncommon, posing a challenge for hospitals in both middle- and low-income nations, as well as high-income ones. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors related with IPC practices at the Regional General Hospital in Pidie Regency, Indonesia. This quantitative research used a cross-sectional study design, and the sample approach was proportional stratified random sampling, with a total of 187 nurses. The data collecting tool includes two questionnaires: One on the determinants of interprofessional cooperation practices and one on the components of interprofessional collaboration. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistical tests, chi-square, and binary logistic regression utilizing the stepwise technique. The study’s findings indicate that professional role factors (p-value = 0.037), patient factors (p-value = 0.001), interpersonal factors (p-value = 0.000), and organizational factors (p-value = 0.002) are all associated with IPC practices at Pidie District General Hospital in Indonesia. Interpersonal variables had the highest correlation with IPC practices (p-value = 0.000, Odds Ratio = 2.424). Quality health care emphasizes the importance of best IPC practices. According to the findings of this study, these four aspects are the most important priorities that the hospital must address right away, and they necessitate a collaborative effort from professional care providers and management to establish successful IPC procedures.
