High-Performance Teamwork in
Incident Management
Wednesday, May 13
1:00-2:00 PM ET | 12:00-1:00 PM CT | 11:00-12:00 PM MT | 10:00-11:00 AM PT
Register for this month’s webinar to hear Erin Eckert, Education Coordinator with the Duke Center for Healthcare Safety and Quality, discuss how TeamSTEPPS supports the teamwork principles underlying the National Incident Management System (NIMS). NIMS provides the national framework for managing disasters and emergency incidents of all sizes, from car accidents to our current COVID response activities. Every organization develops its own response plans and procedures, but the NIMS framework is what allows effective alignment and sharing of capabilities and resources across multiple organizations, different disciplines and jurisdictional boundaries. Participants will learn about common challenges to effective teamwork in incident management – both within organizations and across organizations – and the TeamSTEPPS tools that can be used to overcome them.
