May Webinar: Enhancing Code Blue Team Effectiveness Leveraging TeamSTEPPS 

AHRQ is hosting a webinar on May 11, 2016 from 1 to 2 p.m. ET, on the use of TeamSTEPPS to enhance the effectiveness of Code Blue team leadership at Christiana Care Health System in Wilmington, Delaware. The webinar, "Enhancing Code Blue Team Effectiveness Leveraging TeamSTEPPS," will feature multiple staff from the Christiana Care system: Susan Coffey-Zern, MD, CHSE, Director of Virtual Education and Simulation Training; Michael Vest, DO, FACP, FCCP, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine; Loretta Consiglio-Ward, MSN, RN, Quality/Safety Education Specialist; and Carol Kerrigan Moore, MS, FNP-BC, Quality/Safety Education Specialist. Their presentation will focus on the development and implementation of a training curriculum for Code Blue team leaders, who can lead and shape expected team behaviors through the use of TeamSTEPPS tools such as briefs, call-outs, check-backs and post-code debriefs. Specifically, the presentation will seek to:

  1.  Describe the development of a Code Blue team leader training curriculum that is designed to support clinical team effectiveness;
  2. Recognize the importance of a learning needs assessment prior to initiation of training to assess gaps and inform the curriculum design; and
  3. Explain the value of post-code team debriefs for continuous improvement.
