Multidisciplinary teams deliver high-quality care in complex primary care environments. Using qualitative interviews, we explored the interpersonal dynamics of care team members from 2 models-traditional team-based care and "advanced team-based care" (aTBC). Two differentiating themes emerged-the ways care teams learned and collaborated. aTBC participants described learning from each other and integrating their roles and tasks more so than the traditional model. These differences have implications for patient care and care team member well-being. Our results provide a framework for improving team-based care models and for further research on the impact of adaptive learning and integration in primary care settings.
