The concepts of multi, inter, and trans-disciplinary practice are very essential in any discipline and have similarities and differences. Trans-disciplinary practice involves collaboration between traditional and modern disciplines in order to come up with a refined outcome. This is very important as disciplines add value to each other. Multidisciplinary approach is the aspect of using many different disciplines in problem solving or decision making. Interdisciplinary approach involves collaborative communication and ideas rather than shared ideas. In this case, collaboratively each discipline contributes ideas and skills in order to interpret findings. Through a consensus, priorities are negotiated and an agreement made in decision making and problem solving. All these concepts are very essential in disability management practice as when used jointly, they bring about good outcomes. For instance, in the management of injury and disability at workplace; the aspect of joint labor collaboration can be of great significance. This study addresses the concepts of interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and trans-disciplinary approaches and identifies their impacts on disability management.
