Team work involves many different health care teams with a variety of people. Effective teams speak up and will be listened to, every individual with feel valued and want to work towards shared goals and every team member knows their roles and position in that team. Complex care requires effective teams who all can work well together. Their are two different types of teams: Multidisciplinary teams and Interdisciplinary teams. Multidisciplinary teams do not share their knowledge with others in the team where Interdisciplinary teams integrate their knowledge across boundaries and work towards a more holistic care. Good communication and clear communication within a team cannot be overestimated. Safety is improved with good team collaboration, relatives and patients are happier, the care of the patient improves, every member talks and shares care of the patients, relatives contribute more to the patients care, staff enjoy their work more therefore reducing sick leave and staff free that they are more valued as a member of the team.

this module was valuable to review. It was very good to review all aspects of working within a team and the outcomes for both poor and good teamwork.
