The University of Sydney
Health Care Team Challenge Competition 2014
Congratulations to Team ILFF who won this year’s Health Care Team Challenge.
There were 13 teams (77 students) who joined the 2014 Challenge. This was over double compared with previous years.
Teams were asked to produce a video and write an abstract outlining the case management plan in relation to the rehabilitation of an 18 year old patient called John who sustained a traumatic brain injury as a pedestrian when he was struck by a motor vehicle. Teams were given ‘free rein’ in how they conveyed an interprofessional patient focused approach to care.
The judges met to review the abstracts and video submissions and feedback was provided via video. Judges were particularly impressed with the high level of commitment, enthusiasm, creativity and quality demonstrated in all submissions.
Some participants attended the Sydney Teaching Colloquium on 29 September, taking part in a panel discussion on their experiences. The winning team’s video was showcased at the Colloquium and the team members presented with certificates.
All participants are to be congratulated on their achievements in the Health Care Team Challenge.
We wish to acknowledge Westmead Hospital Brain Injury Unit Community Rehabilitation Team for assistance with this case study.
