There is growing emphasis on teamwork and the role of GPs in multidisciplinary teams [1,2,3]. In the more experienced teams, the participants discussed the composition of the MTM together. And who is responsible for what, and how this will be organized. In experienced teams, GPs shared roles and responsibilities with other team members, because they were more familiar with their knowledge, skills, and added value, resulting in more equivalence among team members. Int J Integr Care. Koelen MA, Vaandrager L, Wagemakers A. GPs and team members of all four teams had the same opinions on this matter. Could employing advanced clinical practitioners (ACPs) help deliver and expand services? Moreover, we performed semi-structured interviews with four GPs. MacAdam M.

The focus-group transcript data that support this analysis may be available on reasonable request from the principal investigator (SG). In the next phase, codes were collated into themes in the light of emerging analytical insights [52]. In the starting team, the GP decided solely the composition of the team: GP: We are ultimately the director of the multidisciplinary team meeting. Ng VK, Burke CA, Narula A.

Therefore, the goal of the study was to obtain key lessons about the uptake of GP roles in successful multidisciplinary teams for elderly care. Our findings will gain strength by studying successful multidisciplinary teams in other western countries, preferably with a PAR approach. In the western world, a growing number of the older people live at home. Rechel B, Grundy E, Robine JM, Cylus J, Mackenbach JP, Knai C, McKee M. Ageing in the European Union.
