This is one of the greatest challenges faced in healthcare today.
There is a lot to learn about leveraging this tension between individual and team in today’s healthcare environments.

He talks about the realities from a physician perspective and those things that have historically influenced the ability of physicians to work in teams.
He also encourages all of us to consider the importance of systems thinking, culture, and leadership when it comes to supporting both individuals and teams.
