In provision of healthcare, effective collaboration of healthcare staff of different cadres can have a positive impact on patient care as far as their safety is concerned. With increasing burden of diseases and complexity inpatient care, the need for interdisciplinary collaboration is on the rise. Gone are those days when a physician, pharmacist, nurse or any healthcare giver in whichever field of health would independently offer quality care that satisfies their patients. Healthcare has evolved enormously within the last two decades. With the evolution of health care and the world’s quest for quality of patient care, there is a requirement for necessitating a parallel health care professional development with great concentration on patient-centered approach of interdisciplinary collaboration. This approach will help coming up with an effective team that will offer exemplary care to patients hence patients’ satisfaction. Focusing on this goal, appraisal of interdisciplinary team should be upheld by skills and strategies for set objectives to be accomplished and overcome the setbacks that might hinder interdisciplinary collaboration.
