System-based interprofessional simulation-based training program increases awareness and use of rapid response teams.
The objective of this study was to develop and implement an interprofessional simulation-based training program for rapid response and cardiac arrest emergencies with emphasis on early recognition and effective communication. The researchers concluded that their study demonstrated that rapid response team underuse due to system barriers may be overcome by this type of program targeting specific needs of the institution.
