TeamSTEPPS Online Communication and Teamwork Course

AHRQ’s TeamSTEPPS ® training curriculum is now available online as an accredited continuing education program, allowing health care providers to become certified as Master TeamSTEPPS Trainers through a web-based course.

TeamSTEPPS is an evidence-based teamwork approach to improve communication and teamwork skills among health care professionals. The TeamSTEPPS Online Master Trainer Course consists of 11 modules, 8 of which offer continuing education (CE) credits. Sample topics include Communication, Situation Monitoring and Mutual Support.

The training curriculum is engaging and includes videos, instructor guides, and slide presentations to further demonstrate the concepts presented in the course.

Learners in a cohort or noncohort group completing the full course of all 11 modules and a coaching session with a TeamSTEPPS Master Trainer not only receive CE credits but can also receive certification as a Master Trainer. Learners can also choose to complete individual modules for CE credits only.

Interested participants can begin the process by completing the TeamSTEPPS readiness assessment. The class is offered at no cost to participants on a first come, first serve basis. The course can be viewed at: .
