The Multi-Disciplinary Team: A learning event
- 138 Digbeth, B5 6DR, Birmingham, BVSC
- Lectures Talks and Workshops, Social Sciences
Multi-disciplinary teams (MDTs) are emerging as a means of delivering patient-centred integrated care and are at the heart of many of the new models of care in Vanguards and Sustainability and Transformation Plans. These teams are evolving differently across diverse health and social care settings to meet local needs.
This learning event is an opportunity to come together to share understanding and experience of MDTs through presentations of up-to-date evidence and case studies exploring what works in practice, with opportunities for sharing, discussion and reflection.
The event will be facilitated by the Strategy Unit (NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit), Health Services Management Centre, University of Birmingham, and ICF International. Our organisations are working collaboratively on several large-scale evaluations of new models of care and where the introduction or development of MDTs are a key feature of system transformation.
Who should attend?
Health and social care professionals, both managers and practitioners, with an interest in MDTs are invited to discuss the latest evidence and experience relating to MDTs. Both those planning or developing MDTs and those who are already part of established teams would benefit from attending this workshop.
What the workshop will cover
- How to MDTs work, what are the factors critical to their success?
- How can MDTs work with and for patients?
- How can we assess whether MDTs are a success?
What will I learn?
Through the exploration of case studies and the evidence, participants will gain an understanding of how to apply evidence and learning to their local context. The event will also support teams to consider how the impact of multidisciplinary teamworking might be assessed at a patient, team and system level.
The event is FREE to attend, but booking is essential. Places will be limited to no more than 3 per organisation. Please use our online booking form.
