O'Dea A, O'Connor P, Keogh I. Postgraduate medical journal. 2014;90:699-708.

This meta-analysis found that while there is clear evidence that team training had positive effects on knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors, there is little evidence that such improvements persist over time. Studies to date have not demonstrated that team training augments clinical outcomes. The authors call for larger, multicenter, longitudinal studies in order to draw clear conclusions about the impact of such training on safety.
