Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Methodology to train team behavior during simulation has received increased attention, but standard performance measures are lacking, especially at the undergraduate level.

PURPOSES:

Our purposes were to develop a reliable team behavior measurement tool and explore the relationship between team behavior and the delivery of an appropriate standard of care specific to the simulated case.

METHODS:

Authors developed a unique team measurement tool based on previous work. Trainees participated in a simulated event involving the presentation of acute dyspnea. Performance was rated by separate raters using the team behavior measurement tool. Interrater reliability was assessed. The relationship between team behavior and the standard of care delivered was explored.

RESULTS:

The instrument proved to be reliable for this case and group of raters. Team behaviors had a positive relationship with the standard of medical care delivered specific to the simulated case.

CONCLUSIONS:

The methods used provide a possible method for training and assessing team performance during simulation.
