Multidisciplinary, interprofessional and transdisciplinary team designations, often used interchangeably, refer to different groups in healthcare that operate with varying degrees of interaction among team members regarding patient care responsibilities. An interprofessional team is composed of members from various practices who interact, communicate continually and share with team members information that’s contributed from their own disciplinary perspective. Generally, they collaborate to solve problems that are too complex to be solved by one discipline. This program helps to increase healthcare professionals’ knowledge about the skills required to work effectively in interprofessional teams.


The goal of this continuing education module is to enhance the abilities of nurses, health educators, dietitians, massage therapists, physical therapists, radiologic technologists, social workers and speech language pathologists to work as interprofessional teams. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • List three advantages of the interprofessional team approach to patient care
  • Describe nine characteristics or roles that team members can exhibit that enhance the functioning of the team
  • Describe the four core competencies required for successful interprofessional collaborative practice

Very insightful. I have not seen these kinds of CEs before. Most of them are very boring and it is about information that we already know for the most part. It is refreshing to see material that is unlike the rest.
