Team-based healthcare is provided by two or more people who represent different professions with the common goal of improving the well-being of a patient. Outcomes such as relief of pain, improved access to healthcare services, early recognition of treatment failure, or other scenarios may be improved with interprofessional collaboration. The delivery of effective team-based, patient-centered care should be tailored to the population served and needs of those individuals. This module serves to outline the components of team-based care and examples of this care in different settings.
The goal of this course is to help healthcare professionals identify core principles of team-based interprofessional healthcare in all settings.
