are sets of expectations that apply to people performing various functions. Team roles always exist in relationship with another role e.g. provider-patient.
Core vs Peripheral Team Roles
o Core ‐ team members provide care continuously to a patient
o Peripheral ‐ team members provide specific input dependent on situation or
point in care. Including peripheral members can be challenging to maintaining
group stability and creativity
Task/action roles help accomplish goals by
Task/action roles help accomplish goals by initiating actions, requesting and sharing
information, facilitating procedures, seeking and providing opinions, clarifying,
summarizing and synthesizing
Maintenance/social roles promote social support among individuals by
Maintenance/social roles promote social support among individuals by providing social
support, harmonizing, relieving tension, energizing, leading, following, compromising, and gate‐keeping
Responsibilities are tasks that must be performed to meet role expectations.
Role responsibilities can be influenced by t
Role responsibilities can be influenced by team member by scope of practice,
disciplinary expertise, as well as the needs of the clinical situation.
E.g. Role – team scribe/historian. Responsibilities include recording all
medications, vitals, actions taken, key points of history, calls made for consultation or lab requests.
‘Response – Ability’
‘Response – Ability’ is a term used to ascribe roles dependent on the team member’s ability to respond in the moment.
E.g. In a team, Jean, a nursing student, is assigned the responsibility of conducting a basic physical exam of the patient, but is asked by the team leader to complete the patient’s medication history. Sam, a physical therapy student is the team scribe but is able to take over the physical exam. The team leader requests Sam move into this role to provide task assistance while Jean is occupied.
Overall lack of clarity as to how a particular role should be performed can adversely impact performance. Lack of clarity about who is responsible for care and for decision‐making has often been a major contributor to medical error (as identified in root cause analyses of sentinel events and poor outcomes). Degree to which patients and families are included as active team members and how to coordinate their participation can challenge teams
Actual incompatibility between two roles inhabited by one person. Exacerbated through role expansion (common in health care). Not meaningfully associated with poor performance

Authority is a legitimate or socially sanctioned use of power and can be charismatic (personal characteristics and power), traditional (positional, based on tradition), legal-rational (bureaucracy).
Most teams require some degree of authority gradient otherwise roles are blurred and decisions cannot be made in a timely fashion. Effective team leaders consciously establish a command hierarchy appropriate to the training and experience of team members.
SBAR provides a framework for
SBAR provides a framework for team members to communicate about a situation. In health care it is focused on communicating critical information about a patient’s condition. Importantly, it provides a vehicle for team members to speak up and express concern in a uniform manner.
• Situation—What is happening with the patient?
• Background—What is the clinical background?
• Assessment—What do I think the problem is?
• Recommendation—What would I recommend?
There are also times when a team member will be temporarily or permanently relieved of authority and responsibility. At those times there is a risk that necessary information about the patient might not be communicated.
The handoff strategy is designed to:
Transfer knowledge and information about the degree of uncertainty (or certainty about diagnoses, etc.), response to treatment, recent changes in condition and circumstances, and the plan (including contingencies).
Transfer authority and responsibility to maintain continuity of care despite changing caregivers and team members.
It also includes an opportunity to ask questions, clarify and confirm.
