AHRQ is pleased to announce that the 2016 TeamSTEPPS National Conference will take place in Washington, D.C., June 8-10, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency near Capitol Hill. On average, the TeamSTEPPS National Conference attracts more than 500 industry professionals. The conference brings techniques, tools and new thinking to assist health care professionals in successfully implementing and sustaining TeamSTEPPS. Innovation is a key element in mapping the future of TeamSTEPPS and the changing health care environment. There is no better venue to experience the impact of TeamSTEPPS in various clinical and non-clinical settings while making invaluable contacts with old and new colleagues.
Registration for the conference has reached capacity and a wait list is developing. If you would like to sign up for the wait list, please email AHRQTeamSTEPPS@aha.org.

The TeamSTEPPS National Implementation Team is honored and excited to announce that the plenary speaker for this year's conference is John Nance, author of Why Hospitals Should Fly.
