An interdisciplinary team in hospital setting is a group of health care professionals from diverse fields who work in a coordinated fashion toward a common goal for the patient.
Such teams play an important role in providing high quality service in in handling adverse events that can be a critical factor in patient care.
While it may not be always possible to completely eliminate such events, it has been proved beyond doubt that proper co-ordination and communication between different care providers working under one roof, can significantly reduce the risk from such events to provide a better outcome.
The interdisciplinary care teams in EMC include:
• Clinical and surgical specialists with proven credentials in their respective disciplines, following an evidence based approach for diagnosis and treatment.
• Qualified Nursing Care teams to cater to specific needs such as neonatal care, intensive care or elderly care.
• Support from ancillary service providers – physiotherapists, dieticians, audiologists, child development therapists, counselors and medical social workers.
• Dedicated service teams to manage other aspects of healthcare such as patient safety, infection control and patient relations.
We aim for an all-inclusive approach to meet any unique healthcare needs of our patients through this process.
