Even though, over the years Dr. Mark Antman has been able to reach great height by working single-handedly, he still strongly believes that working in the company of a multidisciplinary team has a lot of benefits. In contrast to most other medical doctors, Mark thinks that by seeking advice from other medical experts, who possess specialized knowledge and skills, a doctor can significantly enhance his expertise. For instance, a person suffering from dementia cannot certainly depend only on the services offered by a doctor and a nurse for complete recovery. To get back to normal life and to enjoy an improved lifestyle, a dementia patient needs the care and attention of a multidisciplinary team.
In the course of his residency internship, Dr. Mark Antman had the opportunity to work in the company of a multidisciplinary team. However, later on when he turned into a full-fledged, licensed doctor, his prospects of working with a multidisciplinary team slowly faded away. However, he is always on the lookout for an opportunity, which would enable him to work in the company of medical experts from other medicinal spheres so that he can significantly increase his skills and knowledge. Mark is well aware of the fact that in multidisciplinary teams, the nurse plays the most important role. It is his or her responsibility to make certain that everybody in the team is able to perfectly coordinate with each other so that they are capable of achieving targets within a specified timeframe. In such teams, nurses are also in charge of attaining resources and ensuring that all resources are distributed properly.
Though the concept of the head worker is still reasonably new within the sphere of science and medicine, Dr. Mark Antman strongly believes in it. Within multidisciplinary teams, it seems like it is extremely difficult to have a single member as a leader since all the members are of similar rank. The presence of a head worker makes a brilliant substitute since his responsibilities do not put him in the position of a leader. Instead, a head worker basically helps to coordinate a team. He becomes the single point of contact and gets approached in case of any kind of difficulty.
Since Mark Antman has previously worked in the company of multidisciplinary teams, he is well aware of the fact that it is essential for every member of the team to display appreciation and respect towards the work of the nurses.
