Though medical care has become ever more dependent on teamwork, the profession has devoted relatively little attention to what makes for a good team. In this roundtable discussion moderated by Lisa Rosenbaum, panelists Amy Edmondson, Neel Shah, and Thoralf Sundt discuss empirical and cultural approaches to the pursuit of better collaboration.

This audio roundtable is the companion to a three-part series on teamwork, written by Lisa Rosenbaum and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. In this series, Dr Rosenbaum made important reflections on and explorations into the professional, psychological, cultural, and social approaches to fostering high-quality communication and collaboration in the medical community. These articles and links are as follows:

Teamwork — Part 1: Divided We Fall

Teamwork — Part 2: Cursed by Knowledge — Building a Culture of Psychological Safety

Teamwork — Part 3: The Not-My-Problem Problem
