Use Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety
TeamSTEPPS, developed by the United States Department of Defense and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, improves safety and transforms culture in healthcare through better teamwork, communication, leadership, situational awareness, and mutual support. TeamSTEPPS is an evidence-based teamwork system that optimizes patient care by improving communication and teamwork skills among healthcare professionals, including frontline staff. It includes a comprehensive set of ready-to-use materials and a training curriculum to integrate teamwork principles into a variety of settings.
Patient safety experts agree that effective teamwork skills are essential for safe, quality healthcare that prevents and mitigates harm. CPSI will help Canadian teams implement TeamSTEPPS modules and content to address patient safety challenges. You will connect with a growing Canadian TeamSTEPPS community, and learn from international TeamSTEPPS colleagues.
