Abstract [en]

This discussion paper considers examples of informal

communication among multidisciplinary medical teams in

the context of their weekly meeting. Informal exchanges

are frequent, particularly at the beginnings and endings of

meetings, are often private (1-2-1). This opportunity for

synchronous face-to-face informal exchange is highly

valued and reported to be a strong motivator for

attendance at MDT meetings. The exchanges are both

task and non-task related and tend to be conversational.

We suggest that the informal communication we observe

plays an important role in helping team cohesiveness
