Incorporating complex protocols in hospitals challenges practitioners from various inpatient settings to coordinate the care provided to specific patient populations in need of this therapy. The successful translation and implementation of protocols targeting stroke, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and mild hypothermia after cardiac arrest (HACA) are accomplished by the interdisciplinary team. Team performance is vital to enacting protocols safely and effectively. Protocols provide the framework for the team to use, facilitating the actualization of the evidence-based literature. This presentation focuses on the aspects of teamwork, the protocol development processes, and the implementation of three of the most commonly deployed complex patient protocols in critical care.
