The TeamSTEPPS Training Program Accelerator

Safer Healthcare Can Help You Accelerate your TeamSTEPPS Programming and Roll-out.

Based on 20 years of research and development, the Department of Defense, in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), created TeamSTEPPS (Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety). This healthcare communication program is an evidence-based training curriculum designed to improve communication and teamwork skills among healthcare professionals.

TeamSTEPPS is a team training in healthcare program designed for health care professionals that is:
  • A powerful solution for improving patient safety within your organization
  • An evidence-based teamwork system to improve communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals
  • A source for ready-to-use materials and a training curriculum to successfully integrate teamwork principles into all areas of your health care system
  • Scientifically rooted in more than 20 years of research and lessons from the application of teamwork principles and healthcare communication
  • Developed by Department of Defense's Patient Safety Program in collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality
The TeamSTEPPS healthcare communication program is broken into three phases:
  1. A pre-training assessment for site readiness
  2. Training for onsite trainers and health care staff
  3. Implementation and sustainability
