Teamwork, Safety, and Non-Technical Skills

  • December 1, 2017

In this Current Anesthesiology Reports article, author Amanda Rhee of Mount Sinai Hospital (MSH) in New York City, describes the importance of non-technical skills in preventing patient harm, citing some of CRICO’s work in this area. 


Rhee includes an overview of team training programs and checklists as methods to enhance patient safety. MSH is a CRICO Strategies CBS member, and the article highlights our organization as “a stakeholder who recognizes the importance of targeting non-technical skills for quality improvement interventions.” CRICO’s partnership with affiliated hospitals to develop a team training curriculum and surgical safety checklist initiative, is also noted.
