Effective team communication is a cornerstone to ensuring safe patient care, particularly during stressful situations. To evaluate baseline team communication behavior, clinicians at this institution participated in interprofessional video-recorded simulations of a code response and debriefing, followed by standardized evaluations by external reviewers. Evaluations indicate variable performance on different team communication behaviors (highest for escalating care and thinking out loud, lowest for verbally establishing leadership). The authors suggest that assessing baseline communication behaviors can guide future interventions to promote and improve quality and patient safety.
