Team working in health care system helps exchanged skills and important knowledge to deliver the required optimal service (Martin and Rogers 2004). Farrell et al (2001) stated that inter professional health care team is known as a group of workers representing two or more health professions who share their experiences in delivering care to the patients (cited in Leathard 2003, p.5). Thus, occupational boundaries are crossed, the rightness of health care professionals’ view is supported, and what colleagues from each occupation are saying is willing to be listened to (Soothill et al 1995). Therefore, it is important to improve collaborative services among health professions through various aspects such as, communication; guidelines production, joint planning and developing primary health care models (Hornby and Atkins 2000). All of the professions form a circuit in which, each member or group is working towards a specific goal and once a break occurs at this circuit, all will be affected and it will be hard to reach the goal.
Since the establishment of National Health Service (NHS), problems regarding deficits in multidisciplinary collaboration have been detected (Atwal and Caldwell 2005). The analysis of the observational direct study that was conducted by Atwal and Caldwell (2005) to investigate the communicational interaction process among multidisciplinary teams which included occupational therapists, nurses, social workers, physiotherapists and consultants has shown some key differences in the attitude in which each profession interacted. Consultants for example, have had the dominant say within teams and this could be owing to their stature compared to those representing other professions. This can impair some members or groups from interacting with each other because these members or groups are not confident or do not have enough awareness regarding their professional roles which makes them avoid sharing knowledge and communicate...
