DPC2021 Conference Programme



The importance of effective leadership and team work in the clinical team

10 Nov 2021
Round Table 1

Effective team working. A phrase which is so over-used it now rolls off the tongue without much consideration. For NHS workers, effective team working is critical – it’s important that we give the subject its rightful time in the spotlight and reap the benefits of working effectively as part of a brilliant team.
The current Covid crisis has placed unprecedented strain on the NHS. Despite this, there are signs that the demands of the crisis have blurred some traditional boundaries and accelerated the move toward multi-disciplinary working.
As a consequence, complexity has increased as teams throughout the health service find new, urgent issues to deal with, both within their own group and also within their interaction with others.
How important is effective leadership and team work in this new working environment and what could improve this for teams?

  • What are the consequences of ineffective team work in the diabetes team for team morale and patient experience?
  • What are the biggest challenges for teams in the current environment?
  • What do teams need now to help them work effectively together?
  • What would make better leaders in Diabetes teams?
