AHA Team Training

The American Hospital Association (AHA) is closely monitoring COVID-19 information and working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) along with other federal, state and local partners. Using CDC recommendations, additional precautionary measures to support the health and safety of our course attendees are being adopted. As this is an evolving situation, we are continually reviewing policies and will update as needed.

If you are a registered attendee impacted by the COVID-19 virus and need to change your plans, please contact teamtraining@aha.org for assistance. Thank you for your leadership and please find the latest updates and resources on COVID-19 from the AHA.


Welcome to the American Hospital Association's Team Training Program featuring TeamSTEPPS®

AHA Team Training strives to make teams of experts into expert teams. Using a variety of approaches, we support change initiatives to help educate, convene, and shape health care organizations to provide safer team-based care. Our primary focus is Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS®). It is an evidence-based set of tools for optimizing patient outcomes by improving communication and teamwork among health care professionals. It includes a comprehensive set of ready-to-use materials and a training curriculum to successfully integrate teamwork principles into any health care system.

Teams working with American Hospital Association faculty have improved communication and teamwork in their organizations through courses, webinars, an annual national conference, and community support and engagement.
