​Module 2: Team Structure

Module 2 reviews the definition of a team, the structure of teams, and the importance of involving the patient as part of the healthcare team. In healthcare, multiple teams are involved in patient care within a multi-team system. This module breaks down the roles and responsibilities of each team in a multi-team system, including the core team, contingency team, coordinating team, ancillary and support services, and administration. A team structure video is shared to consider how the lack of team structure plays a role in the given scenario. 

After completing this module, you will be able to:

  • Discuss benefits of teamwork and team structure
  • Define a "team"
  • Identify role of patients and their families as part of the care team
  • Describe the components and composition of a multi-team system 
Available for download in this module is the slide deck, implementation worksheet, exercise sheet, instructors guide, and the evidence base.
