Abstract

Design Methods
An integrative systematic literature review followed the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) framework combined with the Endnote reference management system. Following the collection and comprehensive screening a thematic analysis of the included articles occurred utilising within NVivo 12 software.

Purpose
The purpose of this review was to explore the literature for evidence of the impact of interprofessional practice models on health service inequity, particularly within community care settings for diverse ageing populations.

Findings
The review found that there was a paucity of evidence related to the relationship between Interprofessional Practice Models and health service equity for ageing populations. There is a need to improve collaborative practices between social care, public health care, and health service providers, to more clearly define team member roles. Key aspirations included the need for future innovations in health service delivery to place health service equity as a goal for interprofessional practice. There is a need to find ways to measure and articulate the impact for vulnerable populations and communities.

Implications for Practice
The review offers insight into the need for health care delivery models to place health service equity at the centre of the model design. In practice settings, this includes setting interprofessional team goals around achieving equitable care outcomes for, and with vulnerable populations. Implications for practice relate to improving how interprofessional teams work with communities to achieve health care equity.
