dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to explore the power dynamics in interprofessional teamwork by conducting an ethnographic study of three interprofessional teams working in mental health and substance use services in Norway. Data were collected through 14 observation sessions and 18 in-depth interviews with health and social work professionals. Given the potential difference between “what people say and what people do,” we explored how ideas of power were articulated by health and social care professionals and how such structures were observed to be played out in practice. The findings suggest a presence of contrast- ing egalitarian and hierarchical structures, and that professionals were aware of the resulting tension and operated within it. This study contributes to the literature on interprofessional health and social care through providing an analysis of the power dynamics of teamwork interaction and how professionals relate to such structures. The results are relevant to a broad context of interprofessionalism as they provide valuable insight into how power should be understood as a continuum of changeable positions and motivations.en_US
