Abstract:

Healthcare teams must be deliberately cultivated to reach their full potential. Shifting focus from individual performance to a team’s collective competence allows for targeted and evidence-based interventions that support teamwork and improve patient outcomes. We reviewed essential concepts drawn from team science and explored the practical applications of teaming. Reproductive endocrinology and infertility healthcare providers play a pivotal role by teaching, modeling, and fostering teaming attitudes and behaviors. Through teaming, we can maximize our teams’ ability to learn, innovate, compete with other teams, and thrive in today’s healthcare environment.
