Teamwork in healthcare: Lessons for dialysis centers
Abbreviated Journal Title
Engineering, Biomedical; Transplantation; Urology & Nephrology
Healthcare is typically delivered using teams composed of patients and providers, such as nurses, technicians, and physicians. Teams are defined as formal collections of individuals assembled together for a specific purpose. Studies have shown the effectiveness of teams in general, and the specific benefits of healthcare teams. All teams, whether permanent or temporal go through the 4 MEDS stages (mingle, elect, devise, and separate). We analyze the structure and processes of teams, and present ways that the use of teams in the healthcare setting can be effective for the overall quality of healthcare.
