Quality, patient-centered care are recognised standards for providing health care. Since the landscape of health has changed dramatically, with the unprecedented rise in the burden of disease, South African tertiary level public health facilities health professionals struggle to provide quality, patientcentered care to patients with complex health needs. However, integrated teamwork is strongly advocated for in the care of the patient with complex health needs but, it also has the ability to improve the quality and patient-centeredness of care. To this end, the interprofessional teamwork approach is suggested as an alternative to teamwork approaches currently used in tertiary level health facilities.
