AUDIOCONFERENCE OVERVIEW

Patient safety organizations such as the Joint Commission and World Health Organization have embraced teamwork principles to meet and exceed required safety goals, skills and competencies necessary to reduce adverse outcomes. Healthcare organizations across the world are using TeamSTEPPS™-Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety as an effective intervention for improving communication, leadership and other teamwork skills to reduce medical errors that lead to adverse patient outcomes. Developed by the Department of Defense Military Health System and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, TeamSTEPPS is an easy-to-use, public domain, evidence-based teamwork curricula customizable for any healthcare setting. Culture change occurs when behaviors and resultant attitudes align through the proactive sharing of accurate information across disciplines, the use of critical language to alert & avert potential harm and the ability to practice the behaviors as part of the everyday process of delivering patient care. The audioconference speakers will provide access to the curricula and tools, offer training opportunities/lessons learned, provide domain-specific implementation success stories, connect the power of simulation with team practice, and share sustainment strategies.
