Patient Safety Depends on Teamwork

Healthcare professionals work in a complex, high tech, high risk and automated environment that requires a greater level of technical competency and organizational teamwork. Statistics reveal that over 70% of medical errors and adverse outcomes are caused by poor team dynamics, a lack of leadership, or ambiguous communication.

The TeamSTEPPS™ modules focus on creating high performing teams who are able to anticipate and reduce error through improved communication, teamwork, leadership and situation monitoring. Healthcare Team Training professionals support implementation through assessment, diagnosis, intervention, measurement and evaluation.

Our highly experienced team of patient safety and teamwork professionals includes practicing physicians, surgeons, nurses and anesthetists. The team strengths include expertise in statistics, quality and performance improvement, education, curriculum development, research, coaching, crew resource management, human factors, and hospital operations.
