Collaborative practice and teamwork can contribute to improving universal access and quality of health care. However, the operationalization of interprofessional work constitutes a current challenge. Added to this challenge is the conceptual imprecision in the study of the subject, in which terms such as collaboration and teamwork are often used as synonyms. This article aims to present the current concepts of interprofessional work, problematizing them in the context of Primary Health Care. We conclude that teamwork and collaborative practice in Primary Health Care need to be approached in a contingent way, that is, according to the characteristics of the users / population ascribed, according to context and working conditions
