Purpose Statement

Our Code Team Curriculum's purpose is to support and enhance your code team’s processes and incorporate the continual changes found in resuscitation science and facility specific mock code process improvement findings. Additionally the Code Team Training will also provide your facility with a code team member verification pathway which is commonly found in high stakes, high reliability industries like aviation. In short to be a member of the code team each member must attend and successfully meet basic expectations.AHA QCI Cycle From AHA Circulation Journal

Supporting Evidence

The American Heart Association’s 2014 CPR Consensus Statement expresses that a Continuous Quality Improvement (CQI) process is highly encouraged in all healthcare settings. Additionally our many informal needs assessments from across many healthcare settings and classes, published Root Cause Analyses (RCAs), published patient safety reports, education departments, and facility CPR Committees consistently define the following ongoing gaps exist within the many code teams:

  • Poor Intraprofessional team dynamics during codes as evidenced by
    • Lack of professional assertiveness in team leadership
    • Lack of designated leadership
    • Lack of establishing roles
    • Lack of knowing the environment
    • Lack of using cognitive aids
  • Lack of professional assertiveness in team leadership
  • Lack of designated leadership
  • Lack of establishing roles
  • Lack of knowing the environment
  • Lack of using cognitive aids

Our Code Team Training will enable your staff members to have the opportunity to learn existing and new response procedures, repeat events to gain confidence, identify and correct mistakes, refine skills, foster teamwork and improve clinical outcomes during a resuscitation training event.
