Background:In the healthcare system, teamwork is important to improve the quality of services and provide safe and effective cares. Operation room, as a high-risk environment, requires high levels of teamwork employees to secure performance. This study aimed at assessing the teamwork among surgical teams of hospitals affiliated to Social Security Organizations in Tehran City.

Materials and Methods: In this cross-sectional study "Observational Teamwork Assessment for Surgery" checklist was used to evaluate teamwork skill in surgical teams. Sixty surgical teams from two hospitals were assessed. In order to data analysis, descriptive statistics was used to calculate mean and standard deviation of age, work experience and teamwork scores in surgical, nursing and anesthesia sub teams. Two-Way ANOVA test was used to study relationship between scores of three surgical phases, sub teams and behaviors domains.

Results: Mean and standard deviation of age and work experience of participants were 42.81±8.57 and 10.62±6.18 years, respectively. Mean score of teamwork was 3.60±0.51 (out of 6) that showed higher than average team performance level. Among three sub teams, nursing achieved the highest score (3.78±0.44). There was a significant difference between nursing sub team and others (p<0.05).

Conclusion: Although mean score of teamwork was in higher than average level in studied teams, but discrepancies between three sub teams were high and worrisome. Use of educational solutions utilization can be effective to improve teamwork and increase quality of behaviors in operation room.
