A multidisciplinary team is a group of health care workers who are members of different disciplines (professions e.g. Psychiatrists, Social Workers, etc.), each providing specific services to the patient. The team members independently treat various issues a patient may have, focusing on the issues in which they specialise.
The activities of the team are brought together using a care plan. This co-ordinates their services and gets the team working together towards a specific set of goals. Sometimes the person has a key worker, who becomes the main point of contact for the person.
