About this session

During this presentation, Dr. Sarah Janssens will expand on how she became interested in the topic of leadership and why she decided to focus specifically on the subject of shared leadership. Together, Dr. Demian Szyld and Dr. Janssens will discuss the results of a systematic review which examined how leadership is shared within healthcare emergency teams, exploring the how and why of leadership sharing across ER, Trauma, and resuscitation teams. Dr. Janssens will also share the results of her empiric research on leadership sharing within simulated maternity emergencies and what it means for those teams responding to emergencies in the clinical environment.

“Should we demolish traditional medical ‘lighthouse leadership’ to ensure our teams function more effectively?” Tune in to hear Dr. Demian Szyld speak with Dr. Sarah Janssens to get her thoughts on the subject and open up a conversation about leadership research. The presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A where the audience can interact with the speaker.

Learning Objectives
