The TeamSTEPPS Master Training is provided at no cost. However, attendees are responsible for expenses associated with their travel (i.e., airfare, hotel and meals).
The pre-work is designed to help you prepare for the 2-day onsite Master Training course. Furthermore, responses from your team's pre-work will provide the faculty with key insight as to the needs of the class. Completing the pre-work will not only help you garner more from the training, but will also help the faculty leverage their resources and expertise to tailor the curriculum to your needs. It is appropriate for your team to work together on this assignment and have one person submit it on the team's behalf. Download and complete the pre-work below. Instructions on how to upload your pre-work will be forthcoming.
