Healthcare providers typically work in teams. Effective healthcare managers strive to promote teamwork. Teamwork is critical for customer satisfaction, quality of care, and individual and organizational achievement.

Discuss at least 3 types of teams that operate in the healthcare organization.
Identify and briefly explain at least 6 common characteristics of successful healthcare teams.
Explain possible sources of barriers to teamwork among nurses and doctors in the OPD.
Provide recommendations on strategies to promote teamwork in the OPD.
