An experiential course that helps trainees become “team players” by understanding their roles, the importance of communication, and group cohesion.
At the completion of this component, the student will be able to:
- Establish and monitor ground rules, or rules of engagement, that serve as behavioral guidelines for members of teams involved in HIT.
- Develop an HIT action plan that can be easily adapted to changing situations, environments, and goals across a variety of health and health care settings.
- Communicate a clearly articulated position in writing and speech.
- Incorporate diversity in values, critical thinking, and judgments that amplifies the best of individual performance toward the HIT team mission.
- Provide leadership for continuous assessment and learning on practices, processes, and outcomes of the HIT team mission.
Develop a sustaining framework that maximizes the integrated power of teams while recognizing excellence in individual performance of various stakeholders involved in HIT (patients, families, communities, nation, etc.).
