Purpose: To determine the impact of interprofessional Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS) training on teamwork skills during neonatal resuscitation Design: Teams of physicians, nurses, and respiratory therapists participated in TeamSTEPPS training that included simulation with an event-based approach. During the simulations, scripted medication order and performance errors were used to test teamwork skills. Measures of teamwork skills were obtained… 

Creating a Sustainable, Interprofessional-Team Training Program: Initial Results

A single resuscitation simulation was not enough interventional dosage for staff to improve the resuscitation process, and a unit-based quality-improvement simulation training program could help improve the first-5-minute response and resuscitation skills of staff by increasing the frequency of unit- based training overseen by the unit’s clinical nurse specialist.

Teamwork in Pediatric Resuscitation: Training Medical Students on High-Fidelity Simulation

The use of teamwork training based on a customized TeamSTEPPS protocol improved performance in team behavior and group technical achievement in children using high-fidelity simulation.

Effect of a simulation-based workshop on multidisplinary teamwork of newborn emergencies: an intervention study

The instruction of non-technical skills before simulation training did not enhance the acquisition of teamwork skills of the intervention groups over the corresponding set of skills ofThe control groups.

Interprofessional Simulations Promote Knowledge Retention and Enhance Perceptions of Teamwork Skills in a Surgical-Trauma-Burn Intensive Care Unit Setting

Evaluated knowledge retention and analyze changes in perceptions of teamwork among nurses and resident physicians in a STBICU setting after completion of an interprofessional critical event simulation to provide insight for future interprofessional simulations (IPSs), including the ideal frequency of such training, associated cost, and potential effect on nursing turnover.

TeamSTEPPS Training and Vital Signs Chart to Improve Situational Monitoring for Clinical Deterioration

The TeamSTEPPS simulation-enhanced curriculum was successful in improving RN residents’ attitudes toward teamwork, and vital signs monitoring and surveillance practices.



Team Training in the Neonatal Resuscitation Program for Interns: Teamwork and Quality of Resuscitations

Investigating whether interns who received a 2-hour teamwork training intervention with the Neonatal Resuscitation Program demonstrated more teamwork and higher quality resuscitations than control subjects found it feasible and effective to teach interns teamwork skills.

Teaching teamwork during the Neonatal Resuscitation Program: a randomized trial

Compared with the standard NRP, NRP with a teamwork and human error curriculum led interns to exhibit more team behaviors during simulated resuscitations.

How teamwork training for residents can be accomplished by employing simulation-based training (SBT) techniques and contributes tools and strategies for designing structured learning experiences and measurement tools that are explicitly linked to targeted teamwork competencies and learning objectives are provided.

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.

Teamwork and quality during neonatal care in the delivery room

Most team behaviors can be reliably observed during delivery room care by neonatal resuscitation teams, and some are infrequently used, but weak but significant and consistent correlations among these behaviors with independent assessments of NRP compliance and an overall rating of the quality of care are found.
