In an effort to improve communication in an urban emergency department, nurse practitioners and registered nurses underwent a teamwork training intervention emphasizing joint patient evaluations by both the nurse practitioner and registered nurse simultaneously followed by a huddle using the SBAR communication method. The intervention was successfully used in more than 80% of patient encounters and improved teamwork and provider satisfaction.
