Power to the people: the potential for self-managed teams in healthcare

16 Jun 2022
PUU3 - 11A

This session will examine the potential to develop a self-managed team model in health and care organisations, with potential benefits for staff experience, workforce productivity and service delivery.

We will share experiences from the Dutch community service organisation Buurtzorg, which pioneered this approach. We will identify implementation issues and cultural challenges based on the experience of UK organisations that have adopted this model in community services.
