AHA Team Training


During the COVID-19 pandemic, anxiety and depression rates for health care workers have increased coinciding with the likelihood of decreased teamwork and morale. Sanne Holbrook Henninger, MSW, LCSW, Ed D, Director of Patient Experience for Duke Private Diagnostic Clinic, will discuss how concepts of psychological safety, performance improvement and TeamSTEPPS can be used to build action plans for helping teams in crisis. Teams under stress require a solid base of trust, comfort in speaking up, team support, established team values, leadership alignment and communication tools. Team interventions must also go beyond the use of tools and skills and be customized to engage staff in activities to address conflicts, barriers, struggles, leadership relations and events. Effective team work action plans require interventions that go further with activities related to the deeper issues as they evolve. This session will offer an overview of tools and activities but also offer interventions and with examples.
