Effectiveness of Multi-Professional Team Working (MPTW) in Mental Health Care

Posted on Thursday 4th October 2012

HSMC's Jon Glasby was part of a research project which has now published their report on the Effectiveness of Multi-Professional Team Working (MPTW) in Mental Health Care. 

Healthcare professionals must work together effectively in teams to provide the best possible patient care. However, previous research has shown such multi-professional teams often fail to perform to their full potential, as they are not clear about their objectives, disagree about goals, their leadership and how to work together.

The overall aim of this project was to identify the principal factors that ensure MPTW is effective in delivering and improving mental health care for service users.
