TeAMS-training program: a hospital wide multidisciplinary-interprofessional training program for non technical skills in realistic healthcare settings

VUmc believes in outstanding patient care, high-quality teaching and innovative research. VUmc combines a belief in personal, honest and respectful treatment of people with healthy ambition and fundamental curiosity. VUmc has three core values that encapsulate its identity and provide guidelines for thought and action in decision-making and policy development. They also guide individual staff members in their work and personal relationships. These three core values are dedication, attention to detail and ambition.

The TeAMS-program (Training and Assessment of Medical Specialists) aims to improve non-technical skills necessary for working in multidisciplinary-interprofessional teams. The philosophy of the program is that if you train teams that work together, train scenarios relevant for those teams and train skills that can be applied immediately you will achieve best results.

In this experience day we will take you through our three different types of training in the actual training setting, explain how they are set up and the learning goals, and let you get involved as aparticipant. There will also be the opportunity to meet and interact with the trainers and developers of the programme.

There will be three different training groups, and each delegate will experience all three.

  • Acute situations: simulations training (SIM-T)

  • Complex situations: complex situation training (CST)

  • Regular situations: multidisciplinary-interprofessional meeting training (MDM-T)
