Abstract

In an effort to prepare health care professionals for the team-based work environment that exists in health care delivery systems today, some nursing faculty may consider collaborative, team-taught courses that integrate faculty and students from various disciplines. To assist nursing faculty in making an informed decision about integrated curriculum development and course implementation, multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, and transdisciplinary educational teams are defined. Examples are offered that reflect these three integrated educational team models. Finally, the benefits and potential problem areas that result from team initiatives are briefly reviewed.
