Running an outstanding Intensive Care team

Dr Pascale Gruber

What defines “an outstanding intensive care unit or team”? Is it a unit where outcomes or quality markers are good when benchmarked against other units? Were patient feedback is positive? Or a unit where staff morale is good and trainee feedback is excellent? In this talk, we will discuss factors that can help facilitate effective team performance – strong medical and nursing leadership, having clear strategic goals, choosing the right fit for the team, understanding individual motivations, factors that promote effective teamwork and finally conclude with a focus on staff wellbeing.
