MULTI-PROFESSIONAL HEALTHCARE TEAMS IN AMBULATORY SETTINGS
 
1. Healthcare is getting increasingly complex in ambulatory settings.
 
2. The intervention of multiple health professionals with different but
   complementary skills is needed in order to provide all facets of a 
   holistic care to the patients.
 
3. Multi-professional healthcare teams provide cost-efficient and higher
    quality care.
 
4. For the efficient functioning of multi-professional teams, common
    goals are the indispensable basic.
 
5. Independency of each health-profession is linked with a proper
    responsibility and liability.
 
6. Task-shifting within healthcare teams requires that the performing
    healthcare professionals have appropriate training, experience and
    skills and are under close supervision of a physician. Under no
    circumstance may the quality of care delivered be compromised.
 
7.  Physicians are best qualified to be the medical coordinators and
     supervisors of multi-professional healthcare teams.
