Coaching healthcare teams

We understand the practical difficulties with improving healthcare. “Despite numerous methods to improve health care, inconsistencies in success have been attributed to factors that include unengaged staff, absence of supportive improvement resources and organisational inertia.” The Journal of Nursing Management has published an interesting article on research  which investigated ” health care improvement team coaching activities from the perspectives of coachees, coaches and unit leaders in two national improvement collaboratives.”

“The main finding in this study was that team coaching was perceived to positively support the improvement process from the perspectives of coachees, coaches and leaders in both collaboratives. Improvement can be defined as a process or an outcome (Batalden & Davidoff 2007, Berwick 2008). This study focused on team coaching, supporting the process of improvement and did not measure specific, predetermined outcomes.”
