Free TeamSTEPPS® training opportunities
Free training opportunities are available using TeamSTEPPS® (Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety), a set of evidence-based, practical tools that helps hospitals and other health care providers strengthen teamwork with the goal of improving patient safety. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the Department of Defense designed the TeamSTEPPS® program for health care providers for use in a variety of care settings. Free TeamSTEPPS® master trainer courses will be offered at six regional training centers starting in April.
The six regional training centers are NorthShore Long Island Jewish Health System (Roslyn Harbor, NY); Duke University (Durham, NC); Tulane University (New Orleans, LA); University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN); Presbyterian St. Luke's (Denver, CO); and University of Washington (Seattle, WA). Standard training is available, as well as specialized trainings on simulation, interprofessional education, and teaching TeamSTEPPS® to patients and families. Advanced trainings are designed for individuals who already have a strong background in TeamSTEPPS® and an interest in the special topic.
