An overview of Healthy Teams in Healthcare
Teamwork is of increasing importance in modern healthcare. Improving team performance has a direct impact on all concerned. There are benefits to patient outcomes and experience. Organisational efficiency can improve. Changes to clinicians’ levels of confidence, performance and satisfaction are also observed. Numerous reports and Good Medical Practice therefore make it clear that Continued Professional Development related to communication, partnerships and trust is essential. In response, we have created this one-hour, interactive e-learning course for doctors.
What will I learn?
Whether you see yourself as a team leader, team member or partner in a group of doctors this short course will challenge your thinking. We will explore the psychology related to commitment to teams, how teams develop, what members require and what gets in the way. You will regularly be prompted to consider your current circumstances in order to identify actions to make improvements.
What is the format?
Healthy Teams in Healthcare is a one-hour interactive online course. We support your learning via a mix of text, infographics, videos and questionnaires.
First introduced to various models related to the development, function and dysfunction of teams. You explore various aspects of these models, clarifying how issues arise and actions to help avoid or resolve such challenges. Next, you complete the ‘Healthy Team Member Self Assessment‘.
