Teamwork in Health Care- DQ-1

According to Sollecito & Johnson (2013), healthcare organizations have moved away from focusing on technical expertise to focusing on clinical teams that focus on patients’ needs and organizational systems thinking.

After completing this week’s reading, answer the following questions:

a. Why are organizations focusing on teamwork as opposed to skill acquisition?

b. How are new health care professionals being trained on systems thinking and teamwork/collaboration? Do you think this will make a difference in quality outcomes? Why or why not?

Your initial post should be 250-300 words and utilize a minimum of two scholarly sources, cited in APA format.

The Impact of Nursing-DQ-2

After completing this week’s reading, consider the following statement:

Never before has nursing been so important to a health care organization. Nurses are responsible for upholding the public’s trust as well as their health care organization’s reputation and its financial viability.

Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Why or why not? Provide at least three specific reasons to support your position.


High-Performance Teams

The health care team is at the “sharp end” of service delivery. Members of the health care team are most qualified to analyze problems, generate solutions, and implement and evaluate change. Teamwork is vital to the success of the health care system. Health care administrators must know how to form highly functioning health care teams.

Consider the following scenario:
Mr. Smith was admitted to the hospital for surgery on his left knee. When Mr. Smith woke up from the anesthesia, he realized that his right knee had been operated on. You have been asked to form a team to analyze this wrong-site surgery.

In light of this situation, write a two-to three-page paper (excluding title and reference pages) in which you address the questions below. You must include a minimum of two scholarly sources from the Ashford University Library and format your paper according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

1. Who would you have on your team? Why did you select these individuals?

2. What steps would you take to foster open communication? What team dynamics might exist that could interfere with open communication?

3. Identify two quality improvement tool(s)/strategies you could use to address the wrong-site surgery? Explain why you selected these tool(s)/strategies.
