TeamSTEPPS plays a pivotal role in team-based care and enhancing the dynamics of interprofessional health care teams, especially in the context of the current challenges faced by the health care workforce. As the nation continues to grapple with workforce shortages, the team-based care model becomes not just a preferred approach but a necessary one. With its focus on effective team member collaboration, intentional mutual support, and time-tested strategies for improving communication, TeamSTEPPS leads the way in supporting team-based care and strengthening today’s interprofessional workforce. Strong, supported teams are satisfied teams, leading to both improved workforce retention as well as quality, patient care.

TeamSTEPPS through AHA Team Training provides practical, innovative strategies for improving psychological safety, empowering interprofessional partnership, and creating an environment where teams can thrive. Dr. Chris DeRienzo and Rhonda Fischer engage in a moderated discussion on how connecting team-based care with TeamSTEPPS is a powerful combination for supporting and strengthening the interprofessional workforce. Hear how TeamSTEPPS 3.0 and our AHA TeamSTEPPS curriculum innovations create the platform for safe, patient-centered care through an empowered, team-centered lens.
