The delivery of healthcare in the NHS today relies on two key factors: the increasing specialization amongst clinicians as technology and knowledge of the human body expands; and an increasing understanding that the patient is not simply the sum total of their symptoms - the whole person has to be worked with and the different specialists need to work together to provide that care. This guide offers an introduction to the successful managment of cross-functional healthcare teams. With advice on teambuilding, the role of leadership, setting goals and multi-agency working, the book provides techniques to improve team operations. Illustrated throughout with case studies, the book provides advice specific to the need of healthcare professionals.

Multi-disciplinary working; teams and networks; building a multi-disciplinary team; leadership in multi-disciplinary teams; managing multi-disciplinary teams; goals and roles; communication in multi-disciplinary teams; cultures in multi-disciplinary teams; dealing with dysfunctional teams.
