Abstract

Summary: This report will explore the significance of the tuberculosis specialist nurse, the numerous individuals that cohesively work alongside them, and how the difficulties that are encountered in multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) can be approached. Relevance: There are many specialist nurses that work in the hospital environment, and it is crucial to appreciate the roles they contribute to the MDT, to increase effectiveness when working alongside them. Learning about the range of professionals involved can help shape the skills required to work within the MDT. Rather than having a theoretical underpinning, this is a topic with a vocational emphasis and can be better understood through observation and sharing experiences. Take-Home Messages: The MDT consists of a multitude of professionals, in addition to the patient and their family, so it is fundamental to have clear communication and collaboration. The nurse’s role is pivotal in being an advocate for the patient, maintaining continuity of care and educating those involved in the patient’s care.
