Teamwork in Palliative Care

Peter Speck (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines leadership issues in palliative care teams. The findings suggest that the use, and abuse, of power and authority is a key issue for anyone in leadership and should be one of the areas focused upon as part of the ongoing reflective practice of all team members. The results also reveal that empowerment of staff and users of the service or the patient will always have implications for the well-being of all team members and the dynamic they create.

Keywords:   palliative care team, leadership, power, teamwork, staff empowerment, patient empowerment
