TeamSTEPPS® Rapid Response Systems Module
Several organizations have collaborated to design, pilot, and further refine
TeamSTEPPS™ to make it available for all healthcare organizations. Many
individuals contributed a great deal of their time and expertise to the
development of the TeamSTEPPS Rapid Response System Instructor Guide
and its accompanying wealth of materials by developing an evidence-based
framework, providing validated measurement tools, incorporating adult-learning
methodologies and medical illustrations, reviewing content or making
recommendations about the style, identity, terminology, design, and
format. For their expert input to this curriculum, we would like to thank:
