AHRQ Releases TeamSTEPPS

AHRQ Releases TeamSTEPPS 2.0 to Improve Patient Safety in Long-Term Care

AHRQ has updated its TeamSTEPPS® training for long-term care facilities. Now called TeamSTEPPS 2.0 for Long-Term Care, the curriculum updates have improved the usability and flow of materials, added training scenarios to reflect health care issues in long-term care settings, and added a new measurement module to help teams track progress. The revisions also bring this version of the TeamSTEPPS “train-the-trainer” curriculum in line with changes made to TeamSTEPPS 2.0 for hospital-based teams. Users may download and/or print all the free TeamSTEPPS 2.0 for Long-Term Care materials for training in any post-acute or long-term care facility.
