Abstract

INTRODUCTION: Health care leadership and teamwork are essential as nonmedical, technical components required of health teams engaged in patient care. Simulation, which was first introduced in the aviation and the defense industries, has now grown exponentially in health care. Leadership and teamwork are essential non-medical, technical components of patient care that can be learned through mentoring and modeling in HPS.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the role of HPS to assist health care professions in assuming their leadership role in providing effective health care teamwork for their patients.

METHODOLOGY: The Department of Defense (DOD) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services has provided a training program geared toward health professionals designed to address all aspects of teamwork including healthcare leadership. The acronym for this program is TeamSTEPPS standing for Strategies & Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety. This is achieved through effective leadership and teamwork.

RESULTS: The TeamSTEPPS training program focuses on team structure, leadership, situational monitoring, mutual support, and communication as elements required of the patient care team. These principles can be shared with our students and mastered through mentoring and modeling while they engage in the learning modality of HPS.

CONCLUSIONS: Human Patient Simulation (HPS) enhances student leadership through mentoring and modeling in health care education achieved by effective teamwork.
