Preparing to Perform as a Team

Need

When a group of clinicians comes together to address a patient need, it can be the first time that this specific group has assembled. Yet for the sake of the patient, they need to work effectively as a team, as if they’ve been together for years. This requires excellent leadership and followership skills, the leveling of hierarchies and the clarification of roles. An effective team encourages solutions to come from any member of the team – because the answer is almost always in the room.

Intervention

STRATUS has created an interprofessional team training program that provides clinicians a framework and a set of principles to enhance the communication and collaboration of any team that assembles anywhere and at any time.

Impact

Over 500 clinicians attend team training programs at STRATUS each year. This has led to improvements in team performance during high acuity, low frequency events throughout the hospital.
