New guide helps TeamSTEPPS® trainers learn how to teach simulation

Research Activities, June 2011, No. 370

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Department of Defense have released a new guide that provides instruction on using simulation-based training when teaching TeamSTEPPS®. Training Guide: Using Simulation in TeamSTEPPS® Training integrates teamwork, interpersonal, and communication skills into simulation-based training. It offers strategies and tools that can improve team performance and enhance patient safety.

The training course is intended as a train-the-trainer program in which key personnel become familiar with the materials and activities so that they can offer the simulation-based TeamSTEPPS® training to local health care teams. Users of this training course may adapt and augment activities to meet the needs of their specific health care teams and program.
