Mapping TeamSTEPPS in Nursing Education from Primary Through Long-Term Care

TeamSTEPPS is a valuable evidenced based educational program developed by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality and the Department of Defense. It was designed to improve team performance, patient safety and patient outcomes. This presentation will provide basic information on the four pillars of TeamSTEPPS as well as tools/strategies within each pillar. A demonstration will be provided on how TeamSTEPPS can be integrated into a simulation, the classroom, a nursing course, and a nursing program. Examples will be provided across all care settings from primary through long-term care.
