Welcome to the American Hospital Association's Team Training Program featuring TeamSTEPPS®
AHA Team Training strives to make teams of experts into expert teams. Using a variety of approaches, we support change initiatives to help educate, convene, and shape health care organizations to provide safer team-based care. Our primary focus is Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS®). It is an evidence-based set of tools for optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and teamwork 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.
Teams working with American Hospital Association faculty have improved communication and teamwork in their organizations through courses, webinars, an annual national conference, and community support and engagement.
