First job interview - HELP!!

  1. Hi i have my first ever RN job interview next week :uhoh21: and was looking at some of the questions I'm likely to be quizzed on from the personal spec and there are a couple of things i'm not 100% sure on:

    "Demonstrates a basic understanding of their role and its contribution to the multidisciplinary & inter agency team" is the point - whats the difference between the 2???

    thanks in advance!

    I presume they mean all the members of the Multi disciplinary team plus members who come in from Agencies like NHS Professionals ?

    Some clients need services from several agencies, eg: primary care services, health and social services, civil and criminal justice systems. Hence the need for interagency teams. These agencies all have a differing role and provide a different services. Interagency protocols will define the roles and relationships among agencies. They typically include guidelines for referring cases to one another, clarify each agency's responsibilities for assessing and investigating reports; define the circumstances in which joint investigations should be initiated; establish timelines; and provide for the sharing of information and client confidentiality.
    Multidisciplinary teams are groups of professionals from diverse disciplines but usually within the same agency, who come together to provide comprehensive assessment and consultation. While their primary purpose is typically to help team members resolve difficult cases, teams may fulfill a variety of additional functions. They can promote coordination between agencies; provide a "checks and balances" mechanism to ensure that the interests and rights of all concerned parties are addressed; and identify service gaps and breakdowns in coordination or communication between agencies or individuals.
    Hope this helps
