TeamSTEPPS Master Training
TeamSTEPPS is an evidence-based teamwork system aimed at optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and other teamwork skills among healthcare professionals. The two-day, interactive train-the-trainer course will prepare participants to plan, teach, implement, and sustain TeamSTEPPS fundamentals in school programs, curriculums, and clinics.
TeamSTEPPS was developed in partnership between the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Department of Defense (DoD) to improve teamwork, collaboration, and communication among healthcare providers. For more information on TeamSTEPPS, visit the AHRQ website.
