TeamSTEPPS Next Steps


Take the Next Step and become a TeamSTEPPS Influencer by attending this 1.5-day immersive workshop to refresh TeamSTEPPS tools while using design thinking principles to construct and refine your implementation plan.

Upcoming Workshop:
June 11-12, 2019
San Antonio, TX

Becoming a TeamSTEPPS Master Trainer is a great accomplishment! You were provided an introduction to practical tools while developing approaches to address the complexities of behavior and culture change. But change takes time.

What happens after you experience resistance?

What action do you take when leadership or staff have no ownership in the implementation plan?

What do you do when you experience drift?

In an exclusive first look, this workshop aims to take a deeper dive into implementation planning using design thinking principles while also refreshing and expanding upon the TeamSTEPPS tools. Participants will walk away with actionable and practical next steps that they can begin to implement immediately. Come discover how to build on your bright spots and learn from your peers and faculty new ways to address challenges in order to become a TeamSTEPPS Influencer at your organization.

This workshop is led by an interprofessional, multi-organizational group of AHA Team Training faculty. You'll have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with AHA Team Training faculty while also leveraging the expertise of your peers from across the country.
