Using parodies of corporate logos and slogans, the group sought to publicly embarrass the companies into changing their corporate policies in dealing with their poultry suppliers. After winning concessions from McDonald's with its "McCruelty" campaign, the group targeted Burger King with a six-month campaign it called Murder King. Instead of using its previous tactic of stating that the procedure is more humane, the group claimed that CAK was economically more feasible as it reduces the chances of injury to workers in poultry factories and it produces better products by preventing injury to the animal.
Health care staff have to work interdependently to provide high quality and safe care for patients because health care requires staff from across professional boundaries to collaborate and coordinate their efforts.
And the evidence shows that where multi-professional teams work together, patient satisfaction is higher, health care delivery is more effective, there are higher levels of innovation in the provision of new and improved ways of caring for patients, lower levels of staff stress, absenteeism and turnover, and more consistent communication with patients.
Developing and enhancing teamwork in organisations.

Apple, Inc. is responsible for bringing to market such products as the Macintosh computer and laptop, the iPod and iTunes, and most recently, the iPhone%(2). To understand the leadership challenge of our volatile, globalized, hyperconnected age more clearly, we recently initiated a series of structured interviews with the leaders of some of the world’s largest and most vibrant organizations. A readable, concise, and innovative tour through the discipline, International Business: The Challenges of Globalization presents the subject matter in a comprehensive – yet succinct – framework. Real-world examples and engaging features bring concepts to life and make international business accessible to all students.
Illusions of team working in health care. These are basic characteristics of teams. And the more people working in teams with those characteristics in a trust, the lower the levels of errors that could harm patients or staff, the fewer injuries to staff, the lower the levels of harassment, bullying and violence against staff, and the lower the levels of staff absenteeism and patient mortality.
NHS staff management and health service quality So for a lot of NHS staff, teamwork is really more like pie in the sky. Why do so many staff appear not to work in well-functioning teams?
Primarily it is down to poor management and leadership resulting from of lack of knowledge of team working. The pay offs of such good team working are enormous.
Here are the basics. Effective Teamwork Good teams are clear about their task as a team and stated this as an inspiring and where appropriate patient-centred purpose. They are clear about what skills they need in the team to achieve this purpose and therefore make appropriate choices about who should be the team members — not people with inappropriate skills, who display aggressive or disruptive behaviours or who are supernumerary.
Teams should be clear about who the members of the team are. Most teams we encounter in NHS organisations do not agree about who is in their team. It is as basic and problematic as that. Team size is an issue.
Once teams go above 8 or 9 members, effective communication and coordination become more difficult.
Team members need to understand clearly their roles and the roles of other team members, so there is no ambiguity about who is responsible and accountable for what tasks. Most important of all to effective team work in health care, our data shows, is that teams set five or six clear, challenging, measureable objectives every year.
The aim is not just to get the job done but to achieve significant improvements year on year in quality, safety and in patient experience in the case of front line teams; but the need for improvement applies to all teams in the NHS.
Where such objectives are set, health care teams are more effective, innovative and satisfied.
And patients get better quality care and report higher levels of satisfaction. And those objectives constitute a core part of the agenda for regular team meetings. Well-functioning teams in the NHS always have, as one of their objectives, significantly improving the effectiveness with which they work with other teams within and sometimes outside the trust.
Research shows that teams with a positive supportive, humorous, appreciative atmosphere deliver better care doctors in such teams will make more accurate diagnoses for example and staff are significantly less stressed.
We have developed a new scale Team Positivity Ratio to measure the balance of positivity to negativity in teams and are keen for NHS staff to try out this measure email me if you would like to use it - m.
Positive teams are more optimistic, cohesive and have a stronger sense of their efficacy as a team. Teams also have to meet regularly and have useful meetings that enable them to reflect on the quality of care they provide and how to improve it. Such teams are also better able to respond to work pressures and adversity by innovating rather than feeling overwhelmed and helpless.
Reflexivity publications Humans have worked in teams for thousands of years so we know it works — the challenge is to ensure team working is properly applied in modern NHS organisations www.
The payoff will be huge in terms of patient care, compassion, financial performance, errors, stress and almost every important measure of health service performance.
