Buljac-Samardzic, M., Doekhie, K., and van Wijngaarden, J. (2020). Interventions to Improve Team Effectiveness Within Health Care: A Systematic Review of the Past Decade. Human Resources for Health. 18(2).
The authors reviewed nearly 300 articles published between 2008 and 2018 to determine evidence-based team intervention practices. They grouped interventions into four categories: training, tools, organizational (re)design, and programs. Overall, they found “principle-based training” (e.g., TeamSTEPPS) and simulation-based training provided the “greatest opportunities for reaching the improvement goals in team functioning.”
