BOOST! Workshops


BOOST! Building Optimal Outcomes from Successful Teamwork is an innovative foundational team-based care workshop with an aim to improve interprofessional collaborative practice for clinical and project teams across organizations.  We welcome interprofessional team members to come together to work collaboratively on their teamwork or individually to bring learnings back to their team. To optimize collaborative learning, we offer a virtual or in-person synchronous interactive 2.5-hour format where we utilize large group reflections, small group breakout discussions, video team simulation and best practices in virtual team facilitation. Teams in all areas of health care are striving to provide collaborative models of care that optimize patient outcomes and experiences. This is an opportunity to enhance the collaborative practice environment for all staff and students. 


By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

Apply interprofessional competency-based tools to optimize communication, conflict and performance for virtual and non-virtual teams
Demonstrate a climate of psychological safety and team functioning in virtual and non-virtual interactions and meetings
Reflect on and develop an action plan for improving quality, safe team-based care in your context
