Introducing TeamSTEPPS Canada!

Posted Mar 14, 2018

The Health Quality Council of Alberta (HQCA) is proud to partner with the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI) to offer, for the first time in Canada, a foundational course for developing high-functioning teams.

TeamSTEPPS® is an acronym for Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety. It is a teamwork system developed jointly by the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) to improve institutional collaboration and communication relating to patient safety.

The Canadian Patient Safety Institute is launching TeamSTEPPS Canada™ Regional Training Centres with the Health Quality Council of Alberta as a pilot test site. The Regional Training Centres will develop Canadian TeamSTEPPS Canada™ Master Trainers, who will return to their organizations poised to train others and implement the TeamSTEPPS Canada™ curriculum, tools and resources.

TeamSTEPPS Canada offers participants the knowledge, skills, and tools they need to build and promote sustainable teamwork strategies.

This course is of value to participants from any organization with a focus on healthcare. For more information, visit www.teamstepps-canada.ca
