Presented by John Owen, EdD, MSc, Clinical Assistant Professor, UVA School of Nursing, Dr. Linda Waggoner-Fountain, Professor of Pediatrics, Leadership Curriculum Co-Director, and Dr. Leigh-Ann Jones Webb, Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine, Leadership Curriculum Co-Director

Description/Learning Objectives: Interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) teams are essential for safe and effective care. The success of teams is dependent upon leaders adopting interprofessional competencies, guiding team activities, shifting leadership responsibilities when needed, and fostering communication, mutual respect, and trust. Effectively leading IPCP teams is difficult due to hierarchical structures, differences in perceptions of effective leadership, and limited leadership competency training. Leadership models have the potential to mitigate these difficulties by providing a shared mental model among team members and guiding effective leadership behaviors.

The Trusted Leader Model TM consists of three overlapping domains and associated responsibilities:

1. Lead (set direction, align, motivate, and manage),

2. Develop (teach, model, and coach) and

3. Care (know, connect, provide, and protect).

This is an easily-understood model which operationalizes IPCP team leadership competencies and behaviors, and enables leaders to reflect upon their personal reactions to team dynamics, know what to do, and determine when a shift in leadership should occur. Using social interaction, adult learning principles, experiential learning, and reflective practice, the Trusted Leader Model TM will be explained along with the evidence that supports its use. Participants will discuss video clips/case studies that exemplify each domain of the Trusted Leader Model TM and discuss possible applications for leading IPCP teams. The workshop will end with a review of major points and questions/answers.

Expected outcomes for participants will be the utilization of the Trusted Leader Model TM in leading IPCP teams and to communicate this leadership model to other faculty and to students. Following this session, participants will be able to: discuss competencies related to IPCP team leadership; describe the Trusted Leader Model TM as a shared mental model for team leadership; and apply this model to build capacity for effectively leading IPCP teams.

      Funding Opportunity: Doris Duke Clinical Scientist Development Award 2019

      The Doris Duke Clinical Scientist Development Award provides grants to early-career physician scientists to facilitate their transition to independent clinical research careers. The transition to an independent research career is often more difficult for physician scientists than it is for other researchers, as these individuals must balance the demands of both seeing patients and conducting research. DDCF's Medical Research Program created the Clinical Scientist Development Award to provide mentored research funding to early-career physician-scientist faculty to enable their transition to independent and successful research careers. In 2018, the Medical Research Program awarded 18 grants to investigators working in a broad range of…
