Program Overview:

According to the American Medical Association, new health care delivery system reforms hinge on a team-based approach to care. Each member of the team plays a critical role in delivering efficient, accurate, and cost-effective care to patients.1 Currently, not all health care is being delivered in a team-based care model. Physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other health care professionals need to learn how to work in high performing teams, as well as recognize the challenges that impact their teams.  Moreover, health care organizations must provide high quality team based care that reduces medical errors and improves patient safety. According to the National Quality Forum Safe Practice 3: Teamwork Training and Skill Building – Healthcare organizations must establish a proactive, systematic, organization-wide approach to developing team-based care through teamwork training, skill building, and team-led performance improvement interventions that reduce preventable harm to patients.2 Health care professionals need to be able to identify high-performing team characteristics and challenges, and incorporate essential team-based care strategies into their professional practice.
