Abstract

Healthcare professionals work in teams but are rarely trained together. Realizing the adverse impact of poor teamwork on patient care, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education requires surgical trainees to demonstrate a mastery of teamwork-related competencies. A number of team training curricula are available in the USA, the best known of which is TeamSTEPPS - developed by the U.S. Department of Defense Patient Safety Program in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
