Tools for Teams and training network

The Tools4Teams project aims to contribute to safer and more effective care by studying the innovative tools that teams need to perform optimally in complex healthcare situations.

Effective patient care relies on effective teamwork by healthcare professionals. In this context, the Horizon 2020 Tools4Teams project will study the innovative tools that teams need to increase their situational awareness of and responsiveness to complex healthcare situations. Both in centralised acute care settings and in decentralised chronic care settings there is an urgent need to deeper understand team performance. The information will be applied in the design and implementation of innovative tools in training and real-time application. To train the next generation of entrepreneurial, collaborative experts, Tools4Teams will bring together expertise from social and technical sciences, human-centred design, education, and clinical specialties alongside non-academic partners.
