G-MACK Wins the 2014 IAHA HealthFusion Team Challenge!

Working together over two days with the guidance of Profession Mentors, the teams developed a management plan which reflects best practice for complex case study. During the Heats, each team presented their plan to a panel of expert Judges and responded to a number of extension questions and activities under time conditions. The Judges then selected two teams to progress to the Final Showdown where the two teams re-presented their management plans and responded to an extension question. The team that demonstrated the greatest mastery of teamwork and communication throughout the course of the event were declared the winner and 2014 IAHA HFTC Champion.

And the winners were…

G-MACK – Gabriel Oth (Exercise Science), Maddison Adams (podiatry), Celeste Brand (social work), Ashleigh Hull (mental health), and Kirsty Nichols (OT)

Well done to runners-up The Avengers. Honourable mentions go to the other three incredible teams: Stabilo Bosses, Black Pink Power Rangers and 5 Nations.
