ASHRM faculty has created TeamSTEPPS curriculum, concepts and tools specifically for you, the risk manager. This evidenced-based, teamwork system, developed by the Department of Defense and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, is designed to improve efficiency, quality and safety in healthcare. ASHRM Academy’s TeamSTEPPS is information-based (e.g. lectures), demonstration-based (e.g. videos, modeling) and practice-based (e.g. simulation, role playing).

Poor communication and a lack of teamwork are common factors in adverse events. TeamSTEPPS fosters a common language among healthcare providers while developing competencies in:

  • Communication
  • Conflict management
  • Team leadership
  • Mutual trust
  • Shared mental models
  • Mutual performance monitoring
  • Team adaptation
  • Situational awareness

The evidence-based TeamSTEPPS course, focused by ASHRM for risk managers, offers the elements vital to improving teamwork and communication and ultimately patient outcomes. To register for TeamSTEPPS, click here.
