This chapter discusses interdisciplinary team practice and its importance in providing comprehensive services to older adults. This approach is valuable for its ability to attend to the wide range of needs of the older adult, utilizing the expertise of physical and mental health professionals. Both strengths and weaknesses of this approach are identified and illustrated through the use of a case presentation of how a multidisciplinary approach is superior to any specific profession's approach in identifying both problems and solutions.

Keywords:   interdisciplinary team practice, social work practice, elderly, multidisciplinary approach
