The main characteristics in health care organisation are values and beliefs. Values and beliefs in a health care organisation teach us many things. it teach us how to behave with one other in a team at work.

Each team members has different strength from several people can be combined and used to benefit the whole team and make a better product. Combining different skills also lead to increased creativity. This can be achieved only if there is good communication among the team members. Each team members has to treat other team members with respect. According to Chrissy Scivicque, senior content manager at Office Arrow, "Professional values are the principles that guide your decisions and actions in your career."
