Interdisciplinary Team Care

Estimated time to complete:

Abstract: 

Research suggests that good interdisciplinary team communication leads to improved patient and family outcomes (i.e., high levels of patient and family satisfaction, symptom control, and reductions in length of stay and hospital costs). The purpose of the interdisciplinary team is to foster regular, structured and expert communication among health professionals from different disciplines in order to establish, prioritize, and achieve patient treatment goals.

Interdisciplinary team communication is vital in an inpatient healthcare setting, as the complex nature and demands of the healthcare work environment requires the expertise and knowledge of differing disciplines or specialists who can work together to solve multifaceted and complex patient care problems. Interdisciplinary teamwork can improve the diagnostic and prognostic abilities of health professionals more than individual health professionals working alone.

The IDT conference focuses on:
1.    Establishing the patient’s progress toward medical goals;
2.    Considering possible resolutions of any problems that could impede the patient’s progress toward these goals;
3.    Reassessing the goals previously established, if needed; and
4.    Monitoring and revising the treatment plan, as needed

Educational objectives: 

At the end of this module, the student should be able to:
1.    Define the concept of interdisciplinary team care;
2.    Describe the professional role and scope of practice of individual members of an interdisciplinary health care team;
3.    Learn to structure an IDT Conference;
4.    Understand the goals of the IDT Conference;
5.    Identify ways to run an IDT Conference effectively; and
6.    Discuss common pitfalls of the IDT Conference
