Teamwork is an essential way healthcare professionals collaborate to provide integrate care that meet their patients needs and improved patient outcomes in aiming to achieve common goal (Leathard 2003).

Mattie Stepanek, American poet, once said, “Unity is strength…when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” When talking about doctors and patients, there needs to be wonderful things achieved: the solution to the patient’s ailment. But yet, there is little teamwork and collaboration in the process of finding a patient’s solution. Collaboration between the doctor and patient allows both the doctor and patient to solve the problem together, coming to a solution that uses both the doctor’s and patient’s skills, solves the issue effectively, and can help others in the future, giving it an advantage over when there is no collaboration. Collaboration between the doctor and patient allows the doctor and patient that integrates the skills of the doctor and patient.

Interprofessional teamwork has become essential part of health care system in order to improve the quality of care. Many researches has suggested that collaboration of health care workers has impacted the patient care outcome in a positive way, as well as assisting to avoid errors by, “watching each other’s backs” (Cherry & Jacob, p 398). Furthermore, “Important indicators of safety, patient care, and environment of care, such as complications and error rate, length of hospital stay, conflict among caregivers, staff turnover, and mortality rate, have all been shown to decrease in collaborative care environment” (Green & Johnson, 2015, p. 2) In recent years, nurses are in front line in running health care in USA.

Ethical Issues in Group Therapy: Involuntary Membership Group psychotherapy is often voluntary, but sometimes members have been mandated by the court or other authorities to participate. Participation is usually easier for voluntary members since it doesn’t have the added psychological barrier of being forced to attend.

The modern health care system places great importance on inter-professional collaborations and closer working relationships between different health care professionals. Studies have reported that the lack of communication and collaboration can result in adverse events patient care outcomes (L. Fewster-Thuente & B. Velsor-Friedrich, 2008). Inter-professional collaboration brings together professionals to facilitate improvements in the standards of patient-centred care, with each group contributing its own perspective and professional expertise to the collaborative process.
