People with neurological disability present healthcare systems with a large range of complex problems covering many different domains and often lasting a long-time. Consequently, they need a large range of different professional staff, often from different organizations. These people will be considering different, small parts of the overall set of difficulties. In order to ensure both that all problems are considered and that all those involved work in an efficient and effective way one should have a system of cooperation and collaboration. The key features are that the group should work within an agreed model of illness, the biopsychosocial model of illness, using a patient-centred goal-setting process. For this to work effectively people need to work with a consistent set of colleagues, and within a single managerial and budgetary organization based in a single geographical place. This chapter discusses evidence concerning teamwork in rehabilitation, highlighting the importance of social and cultural considerations.
