In- tra-disciplinary means restricted to group, such as nurses. Inter-disciplinary means more than one team member, for example a group that collaborates with one another. Without inter-disciplinary communication and empowerment, patient’s would not receive effective care. It would be a com- plete disaster.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
