ARAUJO, Marize Barros de Souza and ROCHA, Paulo de Medeiros. Teamwork: a challenge for family health strategy consolidation. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.2, pp.455-464. ISSN 1678-4561. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232007000200022.
Teamwork is one of the main pillars of Family Health Care projects, although it is not a strategy exclusively applied to such programs. It is not frequently discussed in current collective health research studies, but the perspective resulting from the full range of its action favors interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary actions. Thus, when building a Family Health Project, teamwork should be guided by a common health care purpose and the players involved should develop an interaction movement within the team itself as well as in relation to the community. It is therefore critical to establish communication practices for mutual understanding. This paper presents some preliminary considerations on the teamwork strategy in Family Health Care actions, indicating barriers and potentials in the construction of this health care model.
