Project Summary and Goals

In emergency settings, saving time means saving lives. This project aims to uncover collaborative and learning patterns that ensure swift and efficient intervention by first responders and in-hospital care teams in high-stakes/emergency medical situations. These teams usually have fluid membership, where team members change depending upon a number of situational and task related characteristics. These structural changes in team membership have only just begun to be of interest for the international research community and, hence there is hardly any empirical evidence on what makes such teams work or what team, individual and organizational level characteristics impact team effectiveness.

The main purpose of this research is to advance knowledge on coordination and learning patterns in high-stakes medical teams. Therefore, this research project is going to employ a mixed methods design to:

O1. Uncover dynamic coordination and learning patterns in high-stakes medical teams
O2. Identify mechanisms that stand behind effective collaborative, coordination and learning patterns
