Essentials Instructional Module and Course Slides
The Long-Term Care version of the TeamSTEPPS Essentials Course is based on a pocket guide developed for hospital settings. The pocket guide is available for download or can be ordered from AHRQ's Publications Clearinghouse (AHRQ Pub. No. 06-0020-2). Although the text uses the term "patient" rather than "resident" and examples are from hospital settings, the guide can be useful for long-term care staff.
