S4-38.2 – On the Importance of Multidisciplinary Teams

S4-38.2 - On the Importance of Multidisciplinary Teams
Last week, the podcast revisited an episode from Season 1 that maintains its relevance now more than ever. In a fascinating conversation with Stephen Harrison, Peter Traber (Chief Medical Officer at Selecta Biosciences), Louise Campbell and Roger Green, you will learn about how passionate providers (nurses, physicians and allied health professionals) can motivate patient lifestyle changes. This segment focuses on the importance of team work and the strengths that multidisciplinary approaches can provide when supporting patients.

Last week SurfingNASH offered a final re-focus on an episode that originally aired during Season 1. This session dives into the role of nurses, physicians and allied health professionals in supporting NASH patients – a topic of increasing relevance as the field grapples with new nomenclature for liver disease and the imminence of therapeutic approvals.

Louise start this conversation by agreeing with Peter’s comment about the importance of team care and discusses what worked and what didn’t work in the liver practice at the NHS when she was there. Peter and Roger each make comments about how to advance team treatment and Stephen shares the perspective of “a passionate provider” and discusses some of his tactics for motivating patients citing two recent cases in detail.
