 Leadership & Team Dynamics - TREAT

Leadership and Team Dynamics - TREAT, IfWH
An ESRC-funded study, in collaboration with the University of Warwick, of enacted teamwork and leadership when faced with real-life obstetric emergencies, to identify teachable behaviours associated with better perinatal outcome.



Leadership and Team Dynamics - TREAT, IfWH
In collaboration with WEISS, we will triangulate linguistic and social science approaches with Artificial Intelligence and computerised analysis of team dynamics and interaction. 


Teamwork and Innovative Technologies

The Group will co-supervise with Prof Ann Blandford (UCL Institute for Digital Health) a Post-doctoral Research Fellow position in the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical Sciences (WEISS) to investigate clinical needs and practices, including cognition (how new tools change the ways that the clinical team comprehend their task), interaction (how teams engage with innovative technologies, and how those technologies can seamlessly support work), and work (how new technologies fit within and transform work and the roles of team members). 

Safety and Quality upon transfer from midwife-led to obstetric care

A senior midwife doctoral fellow will investigate the key characteristics of multidisciplinary interactions and decision making in the context of such transfers, aiming to inform better quality and safety of care.
