The National Consensus Project (NCP) Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, the National Quality Forum (NQF), and multiple Institute of Medicine reports all recommend a team approach as the optimal way to provide patient-and-family-focused care, yet our current socialization of professionals remains discipline-specific. This chapter will provide readers an opportunity to consider various strategies useful in increasing team effectiveness. The use of family meetings is highlighted as an important palliative care team intervention.
