​​Effective teamwork and communication are critical for ensuring high reliability and the safe delivery of care. Teamwork and communication techniques can improve quality and safety, decrease patient harm, promote cross-professional collaboration and the development of common goals, decrease workload issues, and improve staff and patient satisfaction.

Building effective teams and improving communication through standardized tools will move effective teamwork forward in Canada and contribute to a culture of patient safety. CPSI is developing a Canadian Framework for Teamwork and Communication to help healthcare providers and organizations integrate tools and resources into practice.
