Through collaborative efforts with other healthcare professionals, interdisciplinary teams focus on improving individual, family, and community well-being. Therefore, your role within this interdisciplinary team becomes crucial. To be prepared to participate in a global setting, an understanding of your role as a healthcare provider functioning as a member of an interdisciplinary team is required.

By investigating the scholarly literature, you will answer the questions: What are the professional requirements and scope of practice of a person who fulfills your role on an interdisciplinary team in the specified country? What do you need to prepare to function in your role competently? What actions would be performed by your role on an interdisciplinary team? What is your role in an international context?

Prompt

To complete the provided worksheet, identify your role and compare your role on an interdisciplinary healthcare team in the United States to that same role in two other countries of your choice.

Note that you should cite at least three scholarly sources from your investigation. The evidence should not be older than five years. To access the Shapiro Library Guide: Nursing—Graduate, go to the Start Here section of the course.

Specifically, you must address the following rubric criteria:

1.
United States of America: Analyze your role in the United States in terms of its function and required preparation, as well as its importance in supporting a culturally competent, interdisciplinary healthcare team.

· Function: Describe the professional requirements and scope of practice of a person who fulfills your role on the interdisciplinary team in the specified country. In other words, what is the function of your role on the interdisciplinary team? What tasks can be anticipated, and how might those actions facilitate the function of the team?

· Preparation: Consider the preparation required to function in your role competently. In other words, what skills and supplies are required to perform the role appropriately in the specified culture?

· Cultural Competence: Assess your role as a culturally competent health worker on the interdisciplinary health team in the specified country. What is required for a person in your role to be culturally competent? For example, what are the unique cultural characteristics that should inform your practice? Describe the impact of a culturally competent interaction among healthcare workers on the team. How might a lack of cultural awareness or sensitivity negatively impact team function?

2.
Country A: Analyze your role in your selected country in terms of its function and required preparation, as well as its importance in supporting a culturally competent, interdisciplinary healthcare team. Be sure to address all the aspects indicated in the worksheet.

Scenario

The Ebola outbreak in West Africa from 2013 to 2015 was the worst ever seen; it mostly hit the three neighboring nations of Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. In terms of cases reported, Sierra Leone was the nation most severely impacted. The current study examines the outbreak in Sierra Leone. The epidemic was deemed a “public health emergency of worldwide concern” by the WHO in August 2014. Ebola spread quickly as a result of early warning systems, and the nation’s health system was unable to handle the enormous number of Cases (Richards, et al. 2020). In total, 14,124 Ebola cases including 3,955 fatalities had been reported to the WHO by March 2016; this was surpassing any other nation.

Population

Even more expensive than it is for adults, the WHO corresponds with the description of the potential Ebola virus in youngsters. For admission, children under the age of five simply need to exhibit one qualifying symptom. In late November 2014, 13/39 (or 33%) of the children admitted to the main hospital for children came back positive for the Ebola virus disease. As ebola virus infection incidence declined, this proportion rose (Fitzgerald, et al. 2016). This means that children could potentially be exposed to the nosocomial ebola virus sickness, and the effect on mortality for frequent diseases like malaria or sepsis is still unknown.
