NORWALK, Conn., June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that OBGYN.net, the leading online community for women's health professionals, presents new models for Teamwork in the ob/gyn setting.
Teamwork is gaining traction as a model of care that can promote patient safety and improve patient outcomes. When clinicians work together within a system that promotes teamwork, patients can benefit through more comprehensive care, shorter hospital stays, and fewer errors. Teamwork can also benefit doctors, providing opportunities to share knowledge and experience and to learn from clinicians with different skill sets. Teamwork is relatively new to the ob/gyn setting, and OBGYN.net offers content that highlights how teamwork can be used to improve patient care.
These examples include:
- Take the Challenge Out of Managing the Complex Obstetric Patient: Drs Louise King, Camran Nezhat, and Paul Wetter discuss an effective teamwork model, agreeing that patients have better outcomes when clinicians work as a team. When physicians come together and work as a team, the skills of other physicians can enhance the abilities of their team members, benefiting both the patient and the individual team members.
- It Takes a Village: Making the Case for Teamwork: In obstetrics, clinicians are often faced with patients with complex and unique clinical and individual characteristics that can make for a challenging course of care. Early identification of risk factors, pre-planning the course of care, and working as a team to create adverse event prevention plans can be the difference between best possible and disastrous outcomes.
