An Evening with Vic Brazil - Simulation Educators as Team Coaches

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.

And as educators, maybe our role is really that of ‘team coach’. Maybe we need to channel Ted Lasso to really improve our teams and the care they provide.

Join Victoria Brazil as she discusses the role of simulation educators as team coaches in this hybrid event, sponsored by Epworth Medical Foundation and VSA. You can join us at the Epworth Auditorium in Richmond (light refreshments included) or you can attend virtually.
