  • peer review
  • team nursing
  • multidisciplinary
  • community nursing
Number 3 is correct.
The multidisciplinary approach engages members from a diverse group of health care teams to provide an individualized and comprehensive approach to treatment and management of a given disease or condition. Peer review involves evaluating and giving constructive feedback on nursing care. Team nursing involves caring for a group of clients on a floor or in a specialty care unit. Community nursing involves caring for a group of clients within a particular community. These clients may be seen in health departments and clinics, and often have limited money and resources with which to manage their health.
