Interdisciplinary
Team

An interdisciplinary team is a group of health care professionals from different disciplines, each providing specific services to the patient with the aim of ensuring that the patient receives optimum care and support. This team has a prominent role in patient management to ensure best possible outcomes for the patient and their families. We base our approach on evidence-based research with varies focuses such as physical and psychosocial. At St Stephen, a strong culture of holistic care is critical to improving the primary health care of all our patients.

Proper nutrition is essential for living well during and after cancer treatment. Dietitians are the nutrition experts who can help people understand proper eating for their specific conditions.  At St Stephen, the dietician’s primary role is to work with the team to identify patients who are at high risk for malnutrition or significant weight loss and to work with those patients to maintain their nutritional status during treatment.

Patients with cancer may be at risk for limitations in functional status and quality of life. Our occupational therapist offer a supportive service with the specific mission to help people functionally engage in life as safely and independently as possible with the primary goal of improving their quality of life. We are patient-centered and our interventions focus on improving health, well-being, and functional capacity.

Our physiotherapists help people affected by strokes and post-operative orthopaedic surgery regain mobility through movement and exercise, manual therapy, education and advice. They maintain health for people of all ages, helping patients to manage pain and prevent disease. Our physios help to encourage, development and facilitate recovery, enabling our patients to remain independent for as long as possible.
