Teamwork, Leadership, and Continuous Improvement

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterProfessional


In this chapter, we describe the enhanced TeamSTEPPS® curriculum as fundament to creating a “culture of continuous improvement” in nuclear medicine. This evidence-based and modular teamwork system is deployed in concordance with a novel medical leadership development program. It provides a comprehensive and practical approach to improve performance and patient safety within nuclear medicine departments, hence across numerous multidisciplinary patient journeys that are influenced by effective (nuclear) medical imaging. The stepped approach of implementing and sustaining a shift towards a just and blame-free culture of multidisciplinary teamwork is described.
