The Nebraska Coalition for Patient Safety (NCPS) will conduct a TeamSTEPPS® Master Trainer workshop at UNMC's Health Sciences Education Complex in Kearney on July 29-30.
UNMC faculty is invited to attend the event for a discounted registration fee of $50 for both days.
Poor communication and lack of teamwork remain root causes of more than two-thirds of adverse events.
Research conducted in Nebraska hospitals has demonstrated that implementing and using team strategies and tools can improve all four components of a culture of safety:
- overall culture;
- teamwork culture; and
- learning culture.
This research is part of the evidence base for improving safety culture cited by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Consistent with previous TeamSTEPPS® workshops conducted in Nebraska:
- Day 1 (July 29), attendees will learn and practice team strategies and tools (TeamSTEPPS® Fundamentals).
- Day 2 (July 30), attendees will learn implementation strategies including coaching, managing culture change, measurement and evaluation, and action planning.
Participants can attend both days to become a certified TeamSTEPPS® Master Trainer.
It is suggested that at least three people attend the workshop to become TeamSTEPPS Master Trainers. The workshop is appropriate for clinical and non-clinical staff. Katherine Jones, Ph.D., president of the board of directors of NCPS, will lead a team of experienced Master Trainers to conduct the workshop.
For more information or specific questions on the training, contact Jones.
