David Stonehouse

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Multidisciplinary team working is key to patients receiving the right care at the right time, delivered by appropriately qualified and experienced staff. Support workers are a vital part of this team and their contribution needs to be recognised, both by other professional groups, but also importantly by themselves. This article will examine why the multidisciplinary team is so important to delivering quality patient care. It will also highlight potential barriers and how these can be broken down.
