Communication skills amongst professionals all centre on the basic ideology of teamworking. The World Health Organization affirms that primary health should involve all related sectors working together, including education and social services, in addition to health care, and that efforts should be made to coordinate these sectors. This chapter explores how best to ensure effective communication in the care of a terminally ill child through team theory and by examining the challenges of teamwork. General guidance for establishing successful teamwork is also given.
