    Gain Understanding of High-Performing Teams

    The next IPE summit will be held on April 11, 2017 at Saint Paul RiverCentre,175 West Kellogg Boulevard, St. Paul, MN 55102

    Join some of the most creative minds in team dynamics and healthcare at the 2017 Henrietta Schmoll School of Health Interprofessional Education Summit as they address the importance of healthcare teaming, who and what makes a great team, and how to measure effectiveness .

    An effective and innovative team is of singular importance in today’s healthcare environment. Whether in leadership or person care, healthcare of the present and future will be performed in a team atmosphere. The healthcare team strives to keep the person at the center of all they do in order to improve the patient experience and health outcomes, reduce cost, and raise the health of all populations.

    What makes a team effective and high performing? Can team skills be taught? If so, how best to do so? Many questions and challenges arise when thinking of teams. The 2017 Henrietta Schmoll School of Health’s Interprofessional Education Summit brings together some of the best thinkers on teams, healthcare, and education. This year’s summit will include keynote addresses, breakout talks, and poster sessions.

Brian Welle

Director of People Analytics, Google
Brian Welle, Director of People Analytics at Google, firmly believes that an in-depth understanding of human behavior + carefully-crafted experiments + strong measurement and analytics = effective people practices. In his decade at Google, Brian and his team of social scientists have conducted research on employee sentiment, motivation, productivity, satisfaction, and well-being — and partnered with colleagues across People Operations to translate insight into action. Prior to Google, Brian was a research director at Catalyst and a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government. He holds a Ph.D. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from New York University.

Cory Sevin, RN, MSN, NP

For 22 years, Sevin has worked in a variety of community settings, including public health, schools, and community health centers. As a director for IHI, Sevin works in the areas of redesigning clinical office practices, spread, and knowledge management. She is a nurse practitioner with a clinical specialty in adolescent, preventative and community health

Eduardo Salas, Ph.D.

Professor and Allyn R. & Gladys M. Cline Chair in Psychology, Rice University
Growing up in Peru, Salas knew that he wanted to be a scientist. But that goal seemed too broad and too small at the same time. He also knew that he wanted to make the world a better place. Today, he is blending his passions by studying people and processes at work — what individuals do, what groups do and what organizations do to motivate and even guide employees so that they will be more satisfied and productive. Salas focuses on understanding and facilitating teamwork, optimizing environments for learning and development, and performing simulation-based training. Leaders in high-stakes industries — like the military, aviation and healthcare — have given him the task of finding solutions to their organization’s challenges. When asked to describe what an industrial and organizational (I/O) psychologist does, Eduardo Salas, PhD, says, “We change the minds of engineers, pilots, sailors, instructors and team leaders… about how to train, diagnose competencies, develop teams, be leaders and build simulators for learning. That is our legacy.”
