Strengthening Multidisciplinary Teams Training


The two-day session will cultivate specific leadership skills intended to strengthen MDT working relationships, assess team strengths and challenges and enhance participation of all team members. In addition, the session will provide insight into strategies for identifying system issues that impact cases and team dynamics, helping to promote collaborative decision-making and cultivating healthy, productive methods for addressing conflict. The training will be interactive and provide opportunities for practice and feedback. Training Objectives include:

Learning to Assess Team Strengths and Challenges

Understanding the Role of MDT Coordinator/Facilitator

Cultivating a Positive Climate with Your MDT

Facilitating Participatory Discussions with Your Team

Using Questions to Enhance Shared Decision-Making

Recognizing, Appreciating and Capitalizing on Diversity Within the Team

Managing Team Conflict

Engaging in Difficult Conversations

Prerequisites: Multidisciplinary Team Coordination and Leadership must be an integral part of an individual's role at the CAC. Preference will be given to registrants currently affiliated with CACs participating in MDT Enhancement Program (MEP). 

Approval Process: Registrants will be notified of approval status after the registration deadline, approximately one month prior to training. 

Offering quality, professional training in a classroom environment is a key priority for our organization, and we feel that this format is the most conducive to effective learning. Our format allows for small groups, one-on-one coaching and ample Q&A. However, given the inherent size of classroom training, we have to carefully manage the registration process. Our goal is to ensure that participants have timely access to the training sessions they are in need of in order to do their important jobs effectively. In reviewing registrations, our process is to assess both the registrant CAC’s needs as well as the registrant’s completion of course prerequisites.
