Benefits of an Interdisciplinary Health Team
December 9th 2020
Change Your Pain Kamloops provides an interdisciplinary and drug-free approach to pain management, physical rehabilitation, health, and wellness to our clients in Kamloops, BC, and the surrounding area.
For years, interdisciplinary teams have been used in healthcare with positive outcomes. In these teams, each person brings to the table individual knowledge and a specific skill set, which provides for an effective, well-rounded outcome to the client.
When you come to Change Your Pain Kamloops, you will complete a comprehensive medical history, physical assessment and receive a treatment plan. We want to make sure you have a positive experience with us geared towards treating your symptoms and developing positive lifestyle changes that will last.
Interdisciplinary healthcare is especially important due to the limited scope of practice in each clinical discipline. Because of this, having a team of healthcare professionals that each specializes in different areas will benefit the overall quality of life of a patient.
As such, our work as an interdisciplinary team knows what it takes to make permanent lifestyle changes to suit your individual needs. Here are just a few of the benefits of interdisciplinary healthcare.
• Many aspects of the healing process are addressed simultaneously promoting a faster recovery time.
• Promotes a patient-centred care model where the patient preferences, needs and values guide all clinical decisions
• Allows for efficient and effective communication between practitioners regarding patient treatment progress and response, treatment plan modifications, and/or possible contra-indications to treatments.
• The patient can focus on healing without the burden of ensuring practitioners have access to all the necessary patient information
Overall, interdisciplinary patient care planning is structured in a way that the patient can benefit from representatives from the entire care team. This also fosters better communication between the entire care team, building a strong sense of collaboration and teamwork bringing to light the overall picture of what each patient needs.
