The components of an interdisciplinary team PowerPoint Presentation

Multidisciplinary teams are very prevalent in healthcare settings. What kind of leadership is necessary to lead a multidisciplinary team? Do self-directed, high-performing teams even need a leader? Use information from research to support your opinions.

You should use a real-life situation or team to base your PowerPoint. This may include a team that you are leading or one in which you are a member. Remember, no one works by themselves in healthcare. You are a part of some team. Create a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following issues related to multidisciplinary teams in your organization:

Description and make-up of the team
Number of team members
Departments or specialties
If applicable, is the patient a member of the interdisciplinary team? Why or why not?
Purpose and/or goals for the team
Does the team have a clear purpose and/or goals?
Critique how the purpose, or lack thereof, impacts team performance
How does the team communicate?
How is team performance measured? (You may want to ask the leader or member of the team. Remember to include a personal communication citation, per APA)

Summary or conclusion

Maximum 20 slides, excluding a reference slide. A minimum of 3 academic or professional references are required in the PowerPoint presentation.
