Current healthcare practitioners, educators and researchers are required to work together to solve patient problems, educational issues or research projects. Often, such teamwork requires moving beyond one’s own discipline or profession. This has long been taken for granted. No investments took place regarding social interactions, which are now known to be key for successful teamwork.
In this session, knowledge on team learning will be shared. Starting with literature originating from management sciences and organizational psychology, we move towards research on team learning conducted in interdisciplinary teacher teams, working on integrated education. Important factors, e.g. psychological safety, will be discussed. Also, practical examples will be shared on interprofessional teamwork and the achievement of constructive conflicts. In the end, recommendations follow on how to facilitate team learning, which is needed to get the best out of teams.
