Drinka, Theresa J. K.; Streim, Joel E.
Gerontologist, v34 n4 p541-47 Aug 1994
Notes that practice of geriatrics frequently involves interdisciplinary team and that behavior of team members exists on functional continuum, from adaptive to maladaptive. Sees danger of team members with maladaptive behavior, and persons colluding with this behavior, negatively influencing care. Categorizes common maladaptive behavior patterns within teams and suggests intervention strategies from individual, team, and organizational perspective. (Author/NB)
