University of Queensland wins OZ HFTC for 3rd consecutive year

Interprofessional student teams from across the country assembled in Brisbane on October 24, 2016 for the annual Australian HealthFusion Team Challenge (Oz HFTC) - a competition for tertiary health students aimed at fostering their interprofessional teamwork skills.

Teams from Deakin University, Monash University, Queensland University of Technology and the University of Queensland battled it out at the day-long event, which featured a range of new activities designed to test teams on a number of key areas.

Prior to the event, teams spent four weeks working on a treatment plan in response to a complex case study which revolved around a military veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and his family.

Teams were required to present their patient management package before a live audience and a panel of esteemed judges who assessed their performance based on the HealthFusion judging rubric, which looks at key areas such as client centred practice, collaborative leadership, team functioning, communication and ethics.

Putting their teamwork skills to the test, teams took part in a full-day program of challenges, activities and extension questions which contributed to their running scores.

Ultimately, Team University of Queensland was named the champion for the 3rd year running, making HealthFusion history. People’s Choice went to Monash University, who were also named Runners Up.

HealthFusion congratulates all teams on a stellar 2016 HFTC season, and we look forward to seeing you in 2017!
