Interdisciplinary Team Training: Content and Methodology. Interdisciplinary Team Training and Humanistic Patient Care for Hospices. Monograph 4.
Wilson, Dottie C.; Grady, Kathleen A.
This monograph, the fourth in a series of five, provides training information for hospice staff in improving interdisciplinary team functions and humanistic care provisions. Its purpose is to prepare a skilled team of trainers with information about hospices that is relevant to hospice interdisciplinary team training and to document experiences in training hospice staff in interdisciplinary team functions. Chapter 1 reviews the purpose of the training and the trainer's role and provides a checklist of final preparations for the formal training sessions. Each chapter, in chapters 2 through 5, deals with one of the major interdisciplinary team training categories: goals, roles, structure, and procedures. Each of these training categories is outlined in a similar fashion: introduction (explains the meaning of the category and its relevance to hospices), hospice specific examples and issues in training (identifies related issues frequently seen in hospices to provide the trainer with insight into problems faced by hospice staff), approaches to training (provides background information for the trainers, specific session outlines with preparatory materials recommended for trainers and participants, and examples from hospice training experiences), and selected references for training. Following a bibliography are definitions and tables of contents of the five monographs. (YLB)
