    Sometimes a patient has an attitude problem, so a respiratory therapist holds the patient down while a dietitian slaps the patient hard in the face (repeatedly).
    Use my example and you're going to get an A+.
    You're welcome.

    In hospice, we have interdisciplinary teams that collaborate. IDT meetings must take place at least every 15 days per regulations.

    Typically for the two agencies I've worked for it's a nurse, hospice manager, provider, social worker, chaplain, aide and volunteer - although not every patient opts for a social worker, chaplain, aide and/or volunteer.

    Each discipline has specific responsibilities to patient care and assigned parts of the care plan (except for the aide and the volunteer - typically the nurse does the aide care plan and either the nurse or the social worker does the volunteer care plan) but we work together to ensure the patient and their caregivers have the resources and supports they need.

    In the informatics field, we may identify a situation where a new electronic orderset needs to be created for a subset of patients (for example, an insulin sliding scale orderset for diabetic patients, which may include medications, labs, communication, etc.). Clinician subject matter experts (SMEs) such as nurses, doctors, pharmacists, and laboratory staff work with their informatics counterparts as well as with IT, HIM, legal, and compliance resources to make sure that the right orders (including parameters, instructions, etc.) are included in the order set.
