The phenomenon, "huddle moments," can be described as a preparatory briefing among healthcare providers for the purpose of collaborating, exchanging information, and bringing awareness to patient safety concerns. A historical background of huddle communication is described and a systematic literature review was conducted on preoperative briefing and huddle communication. The article also describes a need for increased interprofessional collaboration education in anesthesia and a need for… 
Perspectives of Multidisciplinary Staff toward the Improvement of Communication and Patient Safety by Safety Huddles
Safety huddles had an extremely positive influence on frontline staff and could be implemented in healthcare settings to increase situational awareness and improve teamwork and communication, thereby enhancing patient safety.
Impact of multidisciplinary team huddles on patient safety: a systematic review and proposed taxonomy
High-quality peer-reviewed evidence regarding the effectiveness of hospital-based safety huddles, particularly at the hospital-wide level, is in its earliest stages and a taxonomy and standardised reporting measures are proposed for future huddle-related studies to enhance comparability and evidence quality.
Daily Organizational Safety Huddles: An Important Pause for Situational Awareness
R literature clearly reflects that communication, information sharing, and situational awareness are vital links to patient safety and are especially critical in today’s complex and fastpaced health
The impact of huddles on a multidisciplinary healthcare teams' work engagement, teamwork and job satisfaction: A systematic review.
There is a dearth of high-quality, peer-reviewed evidence regarding the direct impact of huddles on job satisfaction, teamwork and in particular on work engagement in multidisciplinary healthcare teams, but all 12 included studies found a predominantly positive impact on teamwork and job satisfaction.
Huddles and their effectiveness at the frontlines of clinical care: a scoping review
Data from the scoping review point to the effectiveness of huddles at improving work and team process outcomes and indicate the positive impact of huddle effectiveness can extend beyond processes to include improvements in clinical outcomes.
Does Using a Surgical Safety Checklist Improve Surgical Readiness
The aim of this quality-improvement project was to increase safe surgical readiness by adopting the CSC and creating surgical-team awareness of the Phase I Preprocedure Check-In elements and demonstrated an increase in reporting of adverse events related to surgical readiness.
Huddles and Debriefings: Improving Communication on Labor and Delivery.


Uptake of a team briefing in the operating theatre: a Burkean dramatistic analysis.
TeamSTEPPS: Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety
The EVIDENCE from the research clearly supports the implementation of TeamSTEPPS to various healthcare settings and the authors of these studies acknowledged the importance of effective teams in daily patient care delivery.
Perceptions of effective and ineffective nurse-physician communication in hospitals.
PROBLEM Nurse-physician communication affects patient safety. Such communication has been well studied using a variety of survey and observational methods; however, missing from the literature is an
Evaluation of a preoperative team briefing: a new communication routine results in improved clinical practice
Use of a preoperative team checklist briefing was associated with improved physician compliance with antibiotic administration guidelines, and recommendations to enhance timely antibiotic therapy are provided.
Bridging the communication gap in the operating room with medical team training.
Faculty intent to engage in interprofessional education
IPE has the potential to influence patient quality of care and lead to better working relationships between health-care providers and the combination of perceived pressure from school administrators and attitudes toward IPE was the best predictor of intent to engage in IPE.
An update from the AANA practice committee: application of the evidence-based process.
Specific areas discussed include infection control, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists and the interprofessional team, safe practices for needle and syringe use, securing propofol, safe surgery and anesthesia, patient safety and fatigue, and the use of mobile devices.
Preoperative briefing in the operating room: shared cognition, teamwork, and patient safety.
Team briefings designed to supply a broader-perspective surgery model may be an easy-to-apply tool to reduce the number of nonroutine events during surgery and increase patient safety.
Impact of preoperative briefings on operating room delays: a preliminary report.
Preoperative briefings have the potential to increase OR efficiency and thereby improve quality of care and reduce cost and decreased the frequency of communication breakdowns that lead to delays.
Use of briefings and debriefings as a tool in improving team work, efficiency, and communication in the operating theatre
Briefings and debriefings had a positive impact on teamwork and communication and the lists ran more efficiently and briefings did not delay the theatre start times—in fact, the lists tended to start earlier.
