High Performing Teams - UTSW Celebration of Excellence Concurrent Session IIA (RP1903J)
Organized work groups, or multidisciplinary teams, have become a common way to organize health care, and considerable attention has been focused on their value and function. Smooth team function is needed because of increased complexity of care, the demands of new technology, and the need to coordinate multiple patient needs. This activity will focus on the tools and strategies necessary to build not only effective, but high performing teams. This includes efforts at the organizational, departmental, and individual level. Attendees will learn about team-building strategies that include focus areas such as servant leadership, psychological safety, and creating a climate of mutual respect and shared values.
