Patient safety webinar: Developing excellence in team working for safe surgical care
Effective teamwork in the operating theatre or other clinical environments is a critical component of delivering safe, high quality care for surgical patients. This webinar, presented by Professor Bryn Baxendale, will review the attributes that are found consistently in high performing teams in many different contexts outside of healthcare and consider what these look like in surgical care. Current strategies and practices to help develop and sustain excellence in team working within the clinical environment will be reviewed, including the role of simulation. Finally, the webinar will highlight how the design of systems and processes can either assist or hinder the performance of our teams and will consider how this can be explored proactively through ‘stress tests’ to optimise future performance and be led by expert clinical teams in practice.
