Developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality for the United States Department of Defense, TeamSTEPPS® is an evidence-based set of team-related tools to optimize patient outcomes and safety. It is based on five key principles that include team structure, communication, leadership, situation monitoring, and mutual support. This session will focus on the concepts and details contained within these five key principles, including the practices of SBAR (Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation) and CUS (Concerned, Uncomfortable, Safety Issue). Using case study discussion and associated role playing, pediatric physical therapists involved in this session will be able to easily translate basic TeamSTEPPS® strategies and tools into clinical settings, which will enhance patient outcomes and safety as well as strengthen pediatric physical therapy practice. Although, TeamSTEPPS® implementation is more common in in-patient settings, its utilization across all pediatric settings is quite relevant.
