Playing on Our Strengths – Developing Interprofessional Teams in Pediatric Hematology/Oncology (227)

11:30 am – 12:30 pm Saturday, August 19

1CH  The care of pediatric hematology/oncology patients requires a diverse team of healthcare professionals. Interprofessional collaboration between these disciplines improves coordination of care, communication, and patient safety. However, the “how-to” of interprofessional team development is infrequently incorporated in healthcare professional training programs.

In this session, we will introduce tools for interprofessional team development and allow participants to practice collaborative communication using real-world scenarios. This experience will encourage interprofessional teams to work together in daily practice.
