What does Interdisciplinary mean?

Interdisciplinary is defined as the combination of two or more disciplines to a new level of integration1. In healthcare, this is used to create a patient centered team of various disciplines who collaborate to improve the patient care and efficiency of the treatment plan. Interdisciplinary teams are also used in research settings, especially in healthcare research. This consists of a team of researchers from various disciplines working together to improve a research project and tackle the problems from several different angles.


Discipline: a specific branch of knowledge

Multidisciplinary: different disciplines working together, each drawing on their disciplinary knowledge

Interdisciplinary: integrating knowledge and methods from different disciplines, using a real synthesis of approaches

Transdisciplinary: creating a unity of intellectual frameworks beyond the disciplinary perspectives
