Playbooks for Different Teams

Gatorounds was originally developed for a general internal medicine ward. However, these athletic principles can be applied to any medical or surgical team. Playbooks represent standard work descriptions and allow anyone joining the team to fully understand their role and how they fit into the team, just like anyone learning a new position on an athletic team. Ideally these playbooks should be created by those who are performing the work on the front lines, and not by administrators in distant offices or in conference rooms. The devil is in the details. Also keep in mind that playbooks can and should be continually improved using Plan Do Study Adjust cycles. If you have a playbook that you would like to add to our catalogue please feel free to contact me at fsouthwick@gmail.com
