TeamSTEPPS™: Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety

TeamSTEPPS™ is an evidence-based teamwork system aimed at optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and other teamwork skills among health care professionals. It includes a comprehensive set of ready-to-use materials and training curricula necessary to integrate teamwork principles successfully into your health care system.
TeamSTEPPS™ was developed by the Department of Defense (DoD) in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ).

Background

In 1999, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) reported that medical errors caused as many as 98,000 deaths each year—it suggested that systemic failures were important underlying factors and that better teamwork and coordination could prevent harm to patients.
The IOM recommended that health care organizations establish team training programs for personnel in critical care areas such as emergency departments, intensive care units, and operating rooms
