For fifty years, health care teams have been a misunderstood, undervalued, and neglected part of health care. Yet, as Drinka and Clark make clear, well functioning interdisciplinary health care teams (IHCTs) have the potential to help the health care system face its demons-financial constraints and comprehensive error-free care. Because of misunderstandings, administrators, funders, and policy makers keep the potential for interdisciplinary teams hidden. Health care educators teach versions of teamwork that are inadequate and clinicians cling to autonomous modes of practice. IHCTs have characteristics and problems that are unique to health care settings and the health providers who work in them. Drinka and Clark present a groundbreaking attempt to develop a comprehensive framework for IHCTs. They intend to empower clinicians who work on teams and educators who teach teamwork to impart the basic essentials of effective interdisciplinary teamwork in the health professions. Until now, much of the thinking about IHCTs has been drawn from the research and practice literature from other fields, such as business and group dynamics, which may be of only limited relevance to health care settings. Drinka and Clark present new ways of thinking about team development and maintenance, leadership, conflict, the science and art of practice, communication, and team members as teachers and learners. Anyone who is currently working in health care or is considering a career in health care should read this book.

"It is extremely exciting to note the new work of Theresa Drinka and Phil Clark in their textbook, entitled Healthcare Teamwork: Interdisciplinary Practice And Teaching. Teams have changed drastically over the last decades, and this new book adds substantially to our understanding of what needs to be accomplished, and what should be considered when planning for interdisciplinary health care teams training and practice. The text is brought alive with interesting vignettes, excellent tables and graphics, and the authors use their substantial knowledge of the subject to bring us the latest content needed for understanding interdisciplinary practice and teaching. This text should be required reading for all undergraduates who will ultimately become clinicians in order to prepare them for the real world of practice."-Terry Fulmer, PhD, RN, FAAN Professor of Nursing New York University
