Upcoming Webinars

April 2017 Webinar: Teams Saving Brains One Minute at a Time

AHRQ is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, April 12, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET. on one system’s work to improve team effectiveness during stroke codes with the goal of maximizing efficiency and effectiveness of care. This initiative used high-fidelity in situ simulation leveraging TeamSTEPPS tools and strategies to ensure optimal team performance. Outcomes from this team training significantly shortened "door to procedure time" for patients experiencing a stroke. This webinar, "Teams Saving Brains One Minute at a Time," will feature Susan Coffey Zern, M.D., M.S.M.S., C.H.S.E., director, simulation, Christiana Care Health System, and Barbara Albani, M.D., director of neurointerventional surgery, Christiana Care Health System. 
A patient suffering from a stroke requires the care of an interprofessional team who need to work together quickly and efficiently to restore perfusion to the brain to maximize clinical outcomes. The learning from this webinar can be adapted to any high-acuity clinical situation that requires optimal interprofessional team-based response. Using simulation to observe teamwork and communication to make iterative changes to the process was a key factor driving our improvements. Debriefing with frontline team members allowed rapid cycle testing of proposed changes to shape the final process. We will discuss how TeamSTEPPS tools and skills were leveraged in different ways specific to each role.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
  1. Describe the process of improving Stroke Team response using the TeamSTEPPS framework and tools.
  2. Recognize the value of an iterative approach to improving team effectiveness.
  3. Discuss the importance of using clinical data and feedback to improve and sustain team effectiveness.

Previous Webinars

March 2017 Webinar: High-Reliability Organizational Culture Using Standardized Patient Simulation and TeamSTEPPS®

AHRQ hosted a webinar on Wednesday, March 8, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET. on one system's lessons learned from a multicenter collaborative that resulted in more than 20 rapid cycle innovation projects, including nine projects led by frontline staff and four designed to model, practice, and teach TeamSTEPPS key principles using standardized patients in a health care simulation lab. This webinar featured Brent Ibata, Ph.D., J.D., M.P.H., research compliance officer at Sentara Healthcare, and Patric Lundberg, Ph.D., associate professor at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Standardized patient simulation can bridge didactic classroom content into real-world simulated scenarios to facilitate experiential learning of the TeamSTEPPS key principles on the path toward "zero events of preventable harm." A high-reliability organization (HRO) is one that has created and sustained an environment that nurtures and rewards incremental efforts to improve safety while recognizing errors and near-misses as valuable learning opportunities. Standardized patient simulation is one pedagogical tool to model HRO behaviors, stimulate discussions, and practice the TeamSTEPPS key principles of team structure, leadership, situation monitoring, mutual support, and communication.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
  1. Understand the value of an HRO culture in the design, development, and execution of quality and performance improvement initiatives.
  2. Demonstrate how to create and sustain a culture of creative inquiry to encourage health care innovation and achieve an HRO culture.
  3. Describe how the use of TeamSTEPPS with simulated patients can help to create and sustain a high-reliability culture.
Slides are available for download [PowerPoint, 11.11 MB].

February Webinar: Teams, TeamSTEPPS, and Team Structures: Models for Functional Collaboration

AHRQ hosted a webinar on Wednesday, February 8, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET on various team models and how they can be enhanced to perform at the highest level. The webinar, "Teams, TeamSTEPPS, and Team Structures: Models for Functional Collaboration," featured William Gordon, DMin, MDiv, Instructor at Rosalind Franklin University in North Chicago. The TeamSTEPPS framework focuses on the optimization of teams. Knowing how teams are organized and the consequences of those structures enables us to more deeply direct likely outcomes to communication, relationships among members, and personal and professional accountability. Equipped with this information, teams and leaders can make conscious choices to intentionally select or potentially hybridize team structures that are best suited to their purpose and desired outcomes.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
  1. Analyze a team structure by reviewing an organizational chart and hypothesize assets and challenges to relationships, communication, and accountability.
  2. Differentiate between hierarchy, heterarchy, and holacracy as models of team organizational strategies.
  3. Consider possibilities of hybridized organizational models for task- or time-specific teams.

January Webinar: Brain-Based Learning Strategies to Improve TeamSTEPPS®Deployment and Health Care High Reliability

AHRQ hosted a webinar on Wednesday, January 11, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET on Brain-Based Learning Strategies to Improve TeamSTEPPS® Deployment and Health Care High Reliability.
To reliably deliver error-free health care to patients, staff must achieve mastery of the information that defines their scope of practice. Oren Guttman, M.D., M.B.A., director of multidisciplinary team training at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, explained how learning—from the perspective of cognitive neuroscience—is the successful processing of information. Processing includes encoding and storing information and involves the brain’s ability to:
  • Make sense of information to evaluate and extrapolate information.
  • Integrate and differentiate information with other similar information.
  • Retain and retrieve information.
  • Use information to project potential results.
Brain-based learning is the strategy of leveraging our current understanding of the human cognitive architecture to design more successful learning opportunities. Teams can employ this approach to enhance engagement and learning in individual TeamSTEPPS deployment projects to accelerate organizational culture change and improve reliability.
At the end of this webinar, participants will:
  1. Understand the impact of cognitive load theory in learning.
  2. Appreciate cognitive differences between novices and experts, strategies to accelerate learning, and related implications.
  3. Understand the role of error management theory as a strategy to accelerate novice learning.
Slides are available for download [Powerpoint, 5 MB]. Webinar recording.

December Webinar: Reducing Workplace Violence with TeamSTEPPS®

AHRQ hosted a webinar on Wednesday, December 14, from 1 to 2 p.m. ET on how teams can manage and care for aggressive and disruptive patients and while maintaining quality and safety. "Reducing Workplace Violence with TeamSTEPPS®" featured Mei Kong, R.N., M.S.N., assistant vice president and chief operating officer at New York City Health and Hospitals Coney Island, and Joseph Sweeney, director of hospital police and workplace violence prevention coordinator at New York City Health and Hospitals Bellevue.
Clinical teams can learn how to reduce risk of injury, meet regulatory standards, and become proactive members of the team by identifying behavioral triggers and underlying emotional or psychological issues that may cause a person in crisis to escalate to violent behavior. Clinical teams can apply their new knowledge, skills, and attitudes and use TeamSTEPPS tools to address difficult situations. At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
  1. Integrate TeamSTEPPS and nonviolent interventions to improve communication and teamwork to safely manage disruptive and aggressive patients.
  2. Reduce workplace violence with early intervention methods for de-escalation.
  3. Improve staff and patient experience and satisfaction by building a culture of patient and staff safety.
  4. Increase joy and meaning of work by applying new knowledge, skills, and attitudes.
