Team cognition in context: application of novel methods and metrics to characterize team performance in pediatric emergency medicine Public Deposited

Emergency Medical Service (EMS) providers work in teams and their teamwork can affect patient safety and outcomes. Teamwork represents a mixture of collaborative behaviors that have been operationalized in different ways: describing types of communication, subjectively rating behaviors, assessing attitudes, and measuring shared situational awareness. Current methods attempt to distill the quality of teamwork into a single summative value, and consequently provide limited insight into the ongoing process of teamwork. The purpose of this dissertation was to develop a holistic and objective method to analyze the dynamics of EMS teamwork.
