A number of professions, and roles within those professions, exist in the health care industry. The following matrix is designed to help you categorize and learn more about these different professions and roles. Identify at least four different professions and two different roles or positions within those professions. All teams do not have the same number of members. Most teams only have 4 persons. If there are 5 team members on a team, I expect 5 professions, if there are only 4, I expect 4 professions. Provide a brief description of those roles in your own words. Additionally each team member must research their local community and provide part 11 the Community Health Care Employer. Part 11 is an individual portion that every team member must provide input into the matrix using the examples below.
Chapters 7–30 in Introduction to the Health Professions provide excellent descriptions of professions and roles. Web sites you may also find useful include those for local health care organizations or association, such as the American Medical Association.
