This research investigated the multidisciplinary team understanding of the 5P team formulation model and its evaluation on a psychosis rehabilitation unit. Six participants were individually interviewed from one multidisciplinary team. The data was analysed using thematic analysis and this resulted in three main themes: The configuration of 5P team formulation on a psychosis rehabilitation unit, team formulation has multiple functions and team formulation does not require transformational change. Participants evidently understood the 5P model. Team formulation functioned as a cognitive learning process that enabled broader knowledge and a deeper understanding of individual clients. It also facilitated staff to have a space to discuss client cases whilst reinforcing team support and working. It was an informal process that was not directly linked to intervention. However, it indirectly influenced clinical practice both at a team and on an individual level. There were no reported drawbacks to team formulation, and it did not require change. Further research in psychosis services is required in order to generalize the findings. It will also be necessary to link team formulation to psychological intervention if it is to achieve its aim.
