Teamwork

There is no "me" in "team" unless you're dyslexic or a savant. Modernising Medical Careers and New Ways of Working threatens to undermine a lot of established good practice.

I work with several teams. There's one team, for example, consisting of two nurses, a social worker, a bit of an occupational therapist, a support worker, part of a secretary and me. We all spend a lot of time in the same office.

But what is teamwork? What's the difference between collaborative work, parallel working and genuinely working as a multi-disciplinary team?

Yes, there is a 'me' in team if you cut out the middle man, leave the others behind, and review the situation from a different angle!

:D

I'm just kidding around. :)
