The task of facilitating a Multidisciplinary Team can be incredibly rewarding, but is not without its challenges. Playing a vital role on the team, a skilled Facilitator can help the MDT to function smoothly and efficiently. From navigating conflict to ensuring the best possible services for children and families, a facilitator often has to wear many hats. This training is aimed at building capacity within the Team Facilitator role and supporting them in what is often an isolated position.
GOALS OF THIS TRAINING
- Enhance skills as facilitators of team meetings and ongoing team communication and relationships
- Enhance participatory discussion that involves all team members
- Gain insight into and strategies for identifying system issues that impact cases and team dynamics
- Promote collaborative decision-making and healthy, productive methods of addressing conflict.
Registration is limited to 20 participants and priority is given to registrants who demonstrate they are currently responsible for facilitation of team multidisciplinary meetings as well as ongoing team coordination and communication. Due to limited availability and high demand for this course, it is required that those who apply attend the training in its entirety. There is no cost for this training, and NRCAC will cover travel and lodging costs.
