[Symposium leadership presentation] In recent years the demand on healthcare delivery system in Japan has changed from a priority over service to that of patients/service users. Various professionals in the healthcare delivery system tend to work as a team. Although most healthcare professionals consider the importance of teamwork, this may not function well in actuality and it may be hard to control teamwork problems. This paper discusses the findings of a study on the facilitating and disturbing factors of healthcare teamwork acknowledged by professionals, and the differences in perceptions of those professionals about teamwork. In this study, a structured self descriptive questionnaire was administered to registered nurses (RN), medical doctors (MD), physical therapists (PT), and occupational therapists (OT) in five middle-size hospitals with the orthopedic department and rehabilitation center in western part of Japan. There were 305 responses; 135 RN, 19 MD, 55 PT, 44 OT, and 15 other health care professionals including social workers and speech language hearing therapists. The perceptions of multi-professionals about teamwork differed in a number of areas, and teamwork was seen to be reinforced by positive/active communication among these professionals. The results of this study can serve as a reference for healthcare professional education and practice to improve effective patient-centered care and team collaboration.
