Abstract: 

The Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety was developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to measure patient safety culture in an individual medical office by eliciting perception of all staff and providers. The survey has been available since 2008, and consists of 51 items organized in 12 dimensions plus two overall rating questions. Because an interprofessional team is required to meet the complex needs of patients with chronic conditions, we added a section to the MOS that assesses teamwork knowledge and skills. The specific knowledge and skills assessed by our addendum to the MOS are associated with an evidence-based team training program. This program, TeamSTEPPS, is being implemented in hospitals and academic medical centers nationally to address the need for a team training program appropriate for health professions students and practitioners.
