Team Training and TeamSTEPPS™

The Duke TeamSTEPPS™-based courses can help you improve your medical team’s safety, performance, and clinical outcomes. These interactive sessions bring to life the practical tools and strategies of leadership, teamwork, communication, situation monitoring, mutual support, and change management—all of which help enhance efficiency and reduce the potential for error.

We offer courses for learners at all levels in health professions, from students to organizational leaders, seeking to master the knowledge and behaviors fundamental to team-based care delivery.
