Drawing on the literature and her team-based research on medical education transitions, Charlotte will talk about: (i) What transitions are; (ii) How transitions can be researched; and (iii) How medical students and trainees can be helped to navigate transitions.

Building high performance healthcare teams – culture, relationships and translational simulation

Improving teamwork and shaping culture in healthcare is easy to say, but hard to do.
Team training, catchy communication acronyms, and off-site team building might not realise the promise of high performing teams in the complex environment of 21st century healthcare.
Maybe simulation offers more than we think – if used with agility – to explore work environments and the people in them, to test better systems or practices, and to embed ‘best practice’ once we know what that is.
And maybe simulation can actually shape culture, and help high performing healthcare teams get better, together.
