As TeamSTEPPS becomes implemented into the health care environment, it can be challenging to sustain efforts without physician engagement and continual involvement. Join us on Wednesday, January 10 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. ET for a webinar titled, “Physician Engagement in TeamSTEPPS and Patient Safety.” As vital members of the care team, physicians must not only be stakeholders, they must model the techniques and behaviors being implemented in your facility. Due to ever increasing demands on a physician’s time and attention it may be difficult to obtain initial buy-in to training. Physicians may also not see the value or need to add TeamSTEPPS to an already complex care environment. John Nunes, M.D., Chief Safety and Quality Officer for St. Charles Health System lectures nationally on the topic of physician engagement in TeamSTEPPS and offers insight into the removal of barriers to physician involvement. He will discuss the current state of health care and how that can influence your attempts at engaging physicians. This presentation will discuss experience in dealing with an intergenerational workforce and its relevance to team dynamics.

  1. Detail the concepts of patient safety from the physician perspective and how that affects engagement.
  2. Discuss techniques to demonstrate the need for TeamSTEPPS to your physician community in order to improve patient safety.
  3. Demonstrate the development of physician champions through individually relevant communication styles with an intergenerational medical staff.
