Working as a Team

Successful team practice is an essential component of effective health service delivery, particularly in rural and remote practice.  Rural and remote allied health practitioners may work in a number of teams that are likely to have quite different characteristics and dynamics to urban-based teams.

The following learning module has been developed to increase your understanding of teams and what makes them successful in a rural and remote context, and to increase your skills in these areas. The module will take between 30-45 minutes to complete. Click on the below tab to access the module, which will open in a new window.
