This session will focus on the importance and development of trust in interdisciplinary teams including what it’s like to build trust and maintain trust within a team in both in-patient and out-patient environments. This session will also discuss the triumphs and challenges of changes in healthcare and how your experiences influence your perspective and resolve.


Participant Objectives:

At the end of this session, participants will be better able to:

  • Identify the role personal vulnerability plays in establishing trusting interdisciplinary practice relationships

  • Consider the need for articulating a holistic and just lens in patient assessment

  • Reflect on their commitment and motivation to help create novel approaches to patient-centred care

The Humanity in Healthcare (HHC) Series is a multi-disciplinary forum for practicing healthcare professionals to share lived experiences through story-telling and facilitated discussion.  A diverse group of speakers will be invited to discuss frontline personal stories of triumph, struggle, reflection, sorrow, and joy with the participating audience as a means to create a community of shared vulnerability and connectivity. The series in intended to be inclusive of all practicing healthcare professionals and learners along the training continuum and will actively seek out participation from hospital, community, and regional partners. All trainees, faculty, staff, and leaders are welcome!

The 3 overarching aims are: 

  1. Create a space for important conversations to highlight the collective humanity that brings meaning and challenge to our work as healthcare providers. 
  2. Promote a shared and inclusive model for continuing professional development within our healthcare setting that prioritizes health of the care team.
  3. Recognize and reflect on the structures of health care systems and academic institutions to build diverse, equitable and inclusive health care teams.
