Truths & Myths About Teams
Thursday, May 17, 2018 | 12 noon - 1:00 p.m.
Frederic Gaspard Theatre |  Basic Medical Sciences Building  |  Bannatyne Campus

Presented by Lorelei Lingard, PhD

Abstract: The medical community has embraced the notion of “expert teams” as critical to its clinical and educational mandates; however, our conventional emphasis on individual competence is ill-suited to training and assessing teamwork. Using stories of clinical teamwork to illustrate, this presentation describes some paradoxical truths and persistent myths about health-care teamwork, and introduces the concept of “collective competence” as a way of making sense of both.

•     To illustrate a set of paradoxical truths and persistent myths about healthcare teamwork;
•     To expand what we mean by ‘competence’ in medical education; and,
•     To consider the implications of an expanded notion of competence for training and assessment.
