Discussion: Interdisciplinary Teams

This week, you’ve examined the rationale, form, and function of an interdisciplinary team in providing health care. As you’ve seen, members of an interdisciplinary team may come from a variety of professional backgrounds, depending on the needs of the patient, the setting in which care is provided, and the resources available.

To prepare:

For this Discussion, review the case study on pages 2–4 of your course text.

Post a comprehensive response to the following:

  • Name two additional types of health professionals that could have been involved in the case.
  • Provide a rationale as to why they should have been included.
  • In your own words, explain why that professional is important to an interdisciplinary team and what you believe he or she would contribute.
