Many patient safety improvement efforts commonly take one of two approaches - change the system and processes or improve teamwork and communication. Research into which approach produces the best results tells us that both are necessary. Motivation is fostered when we provide knowledge of why system change is needed, and teamwork training empowers both teams and individuals to carry out the change reliably. This combination of motivation and empowerment creates more successful improvement efforts. TeamSTEPPS is a teamwork system based on more than 20 years of experience and lessons learned from high-reliability organizations and can enhance your organization's culture of safety.

This webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:

1. Discuss the impact of workforce empowerment to a culture of safety.
2. List the four core areas of TeamSTEPPS: Leadership, Situation Monitoring, Team Structure and Mutual Support.
3. Identify opportunities for TeamSTEPPS within your organization.
