Families, Systems & Health will devote an upcoming issue to teamwork in health care. Our journal aims to foster new knowledge relevant to "a systemic approach to health care that integrates mind and body; individual and family; and communities, clinicians, and health systems while considering cost-effectiveness and distributive justice."

Relevant submissions could address

  • training of health care teams
  • team leadership models
  • team science
  • the impact of teamwork on patients, staff, health care quality, equity, and financial outcomes

We are particularly interested in data-based manuscripts that address common pitfalls and barriers to team development and teamwork in health care, including primary care.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed.

Deadline for submission is September 30, 2014.

Interested authors should review the instructions for authors for submission details.
