Join us for a conversation between CHEO’s Alex Munter and Dr. Brian Goldman,  host of CBC Radio’s  White Coat, Black Art on his new book, The Power of Teamwork: How We All Can Work Together Better. 


In the high-pressure and complex setting of healthcare, a new approach to teamwork is leading to healthier patients, happier staff, and more efficient operations. Healthcare’s embrace of a new teamwork model has been noticed by people outside the medical world, so doctors are going outside the walls of the hospital to teach manufacturers, business owners, franchisees, customer service representatives and even those in sports and entertainment to do better by shifting the culture from “me” to “we.” 


Drawing on groundbreaking research and examples from around the world, The Power of Teamwork shows how a team approach to medicine can improve customer service and help women break the glass ceiling. It can solidify the provision of social services to troubled youth, and boost the efficiency and safety of the military and critical industrial complexes like nuclear power plants. It can even make professional sports teams perform better.
