Educator and author Jody Hoffer-Gittell, Ph.D., will speak to faculty from 4 to 5 p.m., June 11 in Room 110, Bioengineering Building. The talk will involve evidence-based results of interprofessional activities in the workplace.
More specifically, she will address the theory of relational coordination, which is the idea that work is most effectively coordinated through relationships of shared goals, shared shared knowledge and mutual respect.
MUSC has been a national leader on interprofessionalism in the educational settings, and the university is strategically mapping this across research and clinical delivery practices.
Hoffer-Gittell, is a professor of management at Bradeis University. Her publications include "High Performance Healthcare: Using the Power of Relationships to Achieve Quality, Efficiency and Resilience," "The Southwest Airlines Way," and a number of other articles concerning health care management.
