UCLA Facility photoUCLA first began offering TeamSTEPPS Master Training in 2013, utilizing a diverse team of interprofessional clinical and nonclinical facilitators from the Health System. Held within the UCLA Simulation Center, role-playing and simulation are used along with didactics and group discussions throughout the course. UCLA is home to Lean Six Sigma and Performance Excellence programs, which incorporate TeamSTEPPS skills into their training. UCLA Health has experienced several unit-based successes using TeamSTEPPS, most notably a reduction in Critical Care Transport Team response times.
