Multidisciplinary teamwork in primary care : the role of the counsellor.
Since other professionals have joined doctor and nurse to form multidisciplinary working groups, primary health care teams have made efforts, more or less successfully, to work together.
This paper views the primary health care team as a medium-sized, multidisciplinary, family-like organization with very specific characteristics.
Full of promise as a synergistic body, nevertheless the team frequently struggles with difficult and even self-destructive dynamics.
The structures, problems and values of teamworking in this specialized context are examined, with particular attention given to ways in which the practice counsellor can support and encourage team working.
Suggestions are offered regarding how primary health care teams might move towards a more team-oriented approach.
