Nurses' perceptions of roles in multidisciplinary teams.


The move towards multidisciplinary approaches to health care has been encouraged by a number of government reports (DoH 1986, 1989) in order to support the increase in community care and improve the quality of the service. Such approaches to care are dependent on a high level of co-operation between members of different professions within the multidisciplinary team. Inherent in the concept of such a team is the assumption that each team member has a clear understanding of the role of all other members. This project set out to test this assumption by examining the knowledge and perception of nurses and podiatrists with regard to each other's role.
