Resilient multiprofessional teams
This chapter examines resilience in multiprofessional teams in the palliative care setting. It suggests that multiprofessional teamwork can strengthen resilience in health and social care organizations providing palliative care which might itself be strengthened by greater resilience. It also discusses the concept of attachment theory and its potential positive applications in teamwork or multiprofessional practice. The major caution about applying this approach is that transferring a therapeutic psychological theory to the analysis of social relations in practical teamwork in health and social care organizations is not supported by directly relevant research.
