A multidisciplinary team is a group of health care professionals who specialize in different fields and work together. A multidisciplinary team may work with multiple patients, but each patient receives individualized attention from each team member. This group collaborates on a detailed care plan to organize their services, optimize treatments and define specific objectives.
Multidisciplinary teams are important because they allow patients to receive comprehensive, individualized care from experts in specific disciplines.
The collaboration of these specialists can help a patient receive the services and treatments they need. These professionals can meet a patient's complex needs without neglecting or ignoring issues that may exacerbate existing conditions. These professionals can communicate with one another to discuss any potential challenges, such as medications that may interact with one another.
