Title:
THE EFFECTS OF TEAMSTEPPS ON PROVIDER AND PATIENT OUTCOMES
Abstract:
Purpose/Aims: the purpose of the study is to describe the effects of the simulation-based TeamSTEPPS interdisciplinary communication and teamwork training on participants’ perception of communication and teamwork, and actual patient outcomes. The specific aims of the study are to: 1a) describe the effect of the simulation-based TeamSTEPPS intervention on patient outcomes and nurses’ perception of communication and teamwork,  as compared to the physicians; 1b) describe the change in nurses’ perception of communication and teamwork following the intervention, as compared to baseline; 1c) describe the change in physicians’ perception of communication and teamwork following the intervention, as compared to baseline; 2a) describe the association between nurses’ characteristics to their perception of communication and teamwork, and actual patient outcomes; and 2b) describe the association between physicians’ characteristics to their perception of communication and teamwork, and actual patient outcomes. Rationale/ Conceptual Basis/ Background: Although few studies provide evidence of improved nurse-physician communication and teamwork following simulation-based interdisciplinary communication and teamwork interventions, there is a lack of studies evaluating the effect of such interventions on patient outcomes. Methods: Using a quasi-experimental, a pretest-posttest repeated measures study design; data will be collected at baseline, immediately following, and six months following the intervention. Per power analysis using a multiple regression analysis in G*Power 3.1, a sample size of 218 participants (109 per group) would allow detection of moderate (0.15) effect sizes at an alpha of 0.05 and power of 0.80. All registered nurses employed at the study site and affiliated physicians will be considered for participation. The study will be conducted at an acute care medical center at the University of California, Los Angeles. A multiple regression analysis will be used to determine the relationship between nurses’ and physicians’ characteristics, perceptions of communication and teamwork, and patient outcomes. A repeated measures multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) will be used to determine changes in the nurses’ and physicians’ perception of communication and teamwork, as well as patient outcomes following the intervention. Results: We hypothesize that patient outcomes and perceptions of nurse-physician communication and teamwork will be improved following the TeamSTEPPS intervention. We also hypothesize that the participant’s characteristics (e.g. age, gender, ethnicity, primary language, English proficiency, educational level, country of pre-licensure nursing/ MD education, years of U.S. work experience) will affect patient outcomes and perceptions of nurse-physician communication and teamwork. Implications: The knowledge gained from the study is important for guiding development and implementation of evidence-based interventions, including simulation-based trainings, as well as policies that establish minimum requirements for practice (e.g. training related to U.S. scope of practice, education level, English proficiency, etc.) that impact patient safety and quality of care.
