Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS) is an evidence-based set of teamwork tools, aimed at optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals. It includes a comprehensive set of ready-to-use materials and a training curriculum to successfully integrate teamwork principles into any health care system.
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has funded the Health Research and Educational Trust (HRET) of the American Hospital Association (AHA) to continue efforts in leading the National Implementation of TeamSTEPPS. The National Implementation of TeamSTEPPS has reached thousands of users through in-person courses, updates to the curriculum, monthly webinars, an annual national conference, and community support and engagement.
