TEAMc: Toolkit for Educating a New Generation of Patient- Centred Collaborative Teams

on March 4, 2015

WORLDiscoveries® is excited to introduce an innovative and high-quality team enhancement program: TEAMc- Tools to Enhance and Assist Maximizing Team Collaboration.

TEAMc helps to deliver patient- centred care in a collaborative, coordinated and participatory approach to shared decision making around health and social issues.
