These ad-hoc courses are topic-focused learning opportunities that feature TeamSTEPPS in specific environments or different levels of learning. Our current specialty courses are:


TeamSTEPPS Master Training Course for Outpatient Care

This course is a two-day learning experience with a train-the-trainer approach and utilizes active learning through games, scenarios and discussion. It is formatted the same as a traditional TeamSTEPPS Master Training Course but focuses on the nuances of the ambulatory and outpatient environments.

It is estimated to take 30 minutes to complete.
