An important module for understanding the positive impact good teamwork has on patient care. This unbroken link of honest open communication, shared direction and ongoing reflection of what constitutes good patient care ultimately leads to better outcomes, and job satisfaction for all involved.

This is a great learning tool, as you hear about team work and have had the experience that not everyone follows it. I have always tried to work in a good happy enviroment and keep in mind everything I just learnt and better myself and others. This was great VL as it provides examples of team work and safety of patients and nurses. Skills in a team
