The article is the second of two describing the contingencies that drive and influence the operations of multidisciplinary palliative care teams. The results of analysis reported here are drawn from data gathered in a total of 11 interviews that took place with management teams and multidisciplinary care delivery teams in three palliative care case study organisations in Sydney, Australia, over a period of some 13 months. A model of the management and operation of multidisciplinary palliative care teams is presented to provide a context and to indicate the scope of the research completed so far.
