Children’s Health to host collaboration event March 26-27


Children’s Health will host the educational event, “Improve Cross Functional Collaboration & Teamwork” on Monday, March 26 and Tuesday, March 27 at the hospital.

Led by Bette Gardner, this learning program begins with Friday Night at the ER, which is a serious game set in a hospital, but works for all professions. You will manage a spike in demand, uneven workloads, unexpected events and limited resources all while trying to provide quality care at a reasonable cost. A guided discussion follows the interactive experience.

The two-day workshop includes a game experience and debrief (day 1), and an optional train-the-trainer session for those who want to lead Friday Night at the ER within their own organizations (day 2). The game is an excellent tool for teaching people how to work across functional boundaries to achieve team or company goals, and is widely used by hospitals and universities throughout Texas.

Cost is $475, which includes lunch both days. DFW Hospital Council members receive a 20% discount with the promo code, discount20.
