Abstract [en]

Multi-professional teams have become an established part of the health care sector, where professionals such as psychologists, occupational therapists and physiotherapists work together with doctors and nurses to solve the patients- problems. This has resulted in new modes of communication, mediated through the team conference where the different professional groups make joint decisions in an increasingly complex environment. The paper is based on analysis of video recorded team conferences held in a multi-professional team at a Swedish clinic for rehabilitation medicine. The team-s discussions during the conferences concern, among other things, the work (in)ability of twelve patients participating in the team-s Evaluation Program. The recordings are part of an ethnographically oriented material collected during six months of fieldwork at the clinic. Two key aspects shaping the team-s communicative practice are identified and analysed in relation to the context of the team-s work: 1) the split recipiency of the team-s work and 2) the fact that the information necessary in the decision making process is scattered among the team members. Two imperatives corresponding to these two aspects influence the team-s communicative practice: a) acknowledge rather than ignore the complexity of the double recipiency situation and b) put forth or request any information that may be relevant to the decision making process, regardless of whether it is part of your area of expertise.
