Team Conferences

In order to promote comprehensive communication among the treatment team, client and other relevant stakeholders, a team conference is beneficial, to ensure that the specific goals and expectations of the rehabilitation process are clear to all involved. These goals include timeframes and the discussion may also include possible consequences if expectations for participation in the program are not achieved.
