In a recent survey of medical care recipients, 83% of respondents indicated that team-based care improved their health outcomes (jhartfound.org).  Despite this, many allied health professionals work in isolation.  Approaches to coordinated cross-disciplinary care will be discussed, with emphasis on evidence-based management of services for cochlear implant recipients.

Learner Outcomes:  At the completion of this presentation, participants will be able to describe the differences between interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary teams, explain the key characteristics of an effective care team, describe how to integrate care for effective management of cochlear implant patients.
