Abstract

When healthcare experts from many disciplines work together to provide thorough and efficient patient care, this is referred to as interprofessional collaboration. It is impossible to overestimate the importance of interprofessional cooperation in raising patient safety within the healthcare system. 306 students participated in a 4-hour program that included three team simulation exercises and a 1-hour TeamSTEPPS session. By program, students were divided and asked to choose a main point. Perspectives, opinions, and possibilities for collaboration were investigated in pre- and post-assessments. Pre and post tests were completed by 49% of the students. Improvements in attitudes toward teamwork, motivation, the value of training, self-efficacy, and TeamSTEPPS abilities are significant. Strengthened interprofessional team interaction and understanding of patient advocacy. For patient safety, efficient collaboration among teammates is crucial. In a significant interprofessional TeamSTEPPS-based program encompassing four student professions, we establish beneficial attitude and knowledge consequences.
