Diversity and teamwork are essential in the provisions of healthcare. No single professional can deliver a complete episode of healthcare. Teamwork is required for high quality and safe patient care. It is also important for healthcare organizations to recruit and retain a diverse group of employees that better reflect and meet the needs of diverse communities.
This week for your project, you will create an insert to be placed in your employee handbook on teamwork and the importance of diversity. This portion of your project will require you to conduct research. Include an APA formatted reference page that has a minimum of 2 academic sources, such as a book or an academic scholarly journal.
