2022 Conference Speakers

Featuring Keynote Speaker, Dr. Brian Goldman

presenting “The Power of Teamwork: How We Can All Work Better Together”

Sometimes working in a team environment can seem like a lofty goal when we are faced with health care crisis, practitioner burnout, and lack of resources.

In the high-pressure and complex setting of healthcare, a new approach to teamwork is leading to healthier patients, happier staff and more efficient operations. Healthcare’s embrace of a new teamwork model has been noticed by people outside the medical world, so doctors are going outside the walls of the hospital to teach manufacturers, business owners, franchisees, customer service representatives and even those in sports and entertainment to do better by shifting the culture from “me” to “we.” 

Based on his latest book and drawing on groundbreaking research and examples from around the world, Dr. Goldman shows the audience how a team approach to medicine can improve customer service and help women break the glass ceiling. It can solidify the provision of social services to troubled youth, and boost the efficiency and safety of the military and critical industrial complexes like nuclear power plants. It can even make professional sports teams perform better.

Brian Goldman, MD, is one of those rare individuals with great success in not one but several adrenaline-pumping careers. Goldman is a highly regarded emergency physician at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto. He is also the host of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s award-winning radio show “White Coat, Black Art”, where he takes listeners behind the scenes of hospitals and doctor’s offices. Goldman unpacks and demystifies what goes on inside medicine’s sliding doors – with edgy topics that include the whistle blowing in health care, burnout among health professionals, racism in health care and how to getting to the head of the line in health care.
