The purpose of the session is to emphasize the multidisciplinary nature of a lung cancer screening program and the necessity of building effective team dynamics amongst diverse participants to maximize the effectiveness of a lung cancer screening program. Following a didactic lecture on the power of diversity in team dynamics and performance, the perspectives of a diverse group of lung cancer screening program team members will be presented individually and then collectively within a group discussion. Team members will represent the disciplines of radiology, primary care, hospital administration, pulmonary medicine, and clinic operations/nursing. As the logical leaders of lung cancer screening programs and their multidisciplinary teams, radiologists must understand the importance of building strong, functional teams amongst diverse specialists. Developed in conjunction with the Fleischner Society and the Society for Thoracic Radiology.
Examine the rationale for focusing on team dynamics when implementing a lung cancer screening program.
Compare the perspectives and priorities of diverse members of a lung cancer screening team.
Manage team dynamics effectively to avoid tension and build trust.
