Our Center was established to educate students and health professionals on team-based care, which is a growing evidenced-based practice to improve outcomes for the patients/clients and communities we serve. Team-based or interprofessional collaborative practice has its challenges, but as professionals we are here to improve the health and quality of lives of the individuals we encounter. We are so much better when we work as a team and in the past, we were expected to learn how to be effective team members on our own, without any formal training. That has now changed and there are effective ways to build, educate and assess team performance. So join us at LSU Health New Orleans as we work together to train our current and future healthcare industry workforce.
