Collaboration among health care professionals

Collaboration among health care professionals is the key to positive patient outcomes. Each member of the health care team has been trained with specific knowledge and skills, which allow him or her to do what he or she do best. Working together as a team brings specific strengths of each discipline to focus on the care of the patient and supplements any weaknesses of other teammates. Effective interdisciplinary relationships decrease costs and improve patient satisfaction, while improving overall health care worker satisfaction.
