TeamSTEPPS Overview

Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS®) is an evidence-based set of teamwork tools designed to optimize team function and improve patient safety. Our TeamSTEPPS Master Training Course is a 2-day interactive course in partnership with the American Hospital Association. Held at the UCLA Simulation Center, we teach healthcare professionals teamwork and communication tools, using human-centered design thinking tools to implement change. The goal is to develop master trainers as change agents to spread and sustain team training. Master Trainers course will learn all the TeamSTEPPS tools and principles - what they are, how to use them, and how to implement them. They will gain skills and resources for training and facilitating a TeamSTEPPS rollout, integrating TeamSTEPPS within their practice and quality improvement projects at their local unit/institution.

This in-person, highly interactive hands-on “train-the-trainer” course is led by an interprofessional faculty team utilizing games, scenarios and activities. This participatory approach allows course attendees to experience and practice the TeamSTEPPS fundamental content and provides established resources and skills to create training strategies and learning experiences.
