Understanding Interprofessional and Family Dynamics in Intensive Care Units

 

From September 2012 to December 2013 I conducted a comparative ethnography of team dynamics in the intensive care unit. This study was funded by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. We have published several papers on this project. PDFs archived here are pre-print. Please do not hesitate to write and ask for the published version.

This research has also been diffused through other media, including several presentation slides, and a knowledge translation video titled “Team Dynamics in Space,” produced by The University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, Postgraduate Medical Education. Use it to teach the CanMEDS Collaborator Role!
