Session Overview: 

The future of public health and healthcare is, in part, dependent on high-functioning teams that are able to navigate the complex nature of modern health systems. Training in the art and science of teamwork is increasing in popularity and demand with programs such as TeamSTEPPS® and the embedding of Interprofessional Education into health professions’ curricula. Ensuring quality training in teams, teamwork, and teaming requires assessment of the learners partaking in the training and evaluation of the program as a whole. This AHSE session will provide the necessary background, current resources, and strategies for creating and implementing assessment tools for measuring teams and teamwork competence.
