SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer Course As part of its effort to fulfill its mission goals, AHRQ, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense’s TRICARE Management Activity, developed TeamSTEPP51) (aka, Team Strategies and Tools for Enhancing Performance and Patient Safety) to provide an evidence-based suite of tools and strategies for training teamworkbased patient safety to health care professionals. TeamSTEPPS includes multiple toolkits, which are all tied to or are variants of the core curriculum. TeamSTEPPS resources have been developed for primary care, rapid response systems, long-term care, and patients with limited English proficiency. The main objective of the TeamSTEPPS program is to improve patient safety by training health care staff in various teamwork, communication, and patient safety concepts, tools, and techniques and ultimately helping to build national capacity for supporting teamwork-based patient safety efforts in health care organizations. Since 2007, AHRQ’s National Implementation Program has produced (and continues to produce) Master Trainers who have stimulated the use and adoption of TeamSTEPPS in health care delivery systems. These individuals were trained during twoday, in-person classes using the TeamSTEPPS core curriculum at regional training centers across the U.S. AHRQ has also provided technical assistance and consultation on implementing TeamSTEPPS and has developed various channels of learning (e.g., user networks, various educational venues) for continued support and the improvement of teamwork in health care. Since the inception of the National VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Sep 19, 2014 Jkt 232001 Implementation Program, AHRQ has trained more than 5,000 participants to serve as TeamSTEPPS Master Trainers. Despite the success of the National Implementation Program and the availability of training through this initiative, AHRQ has been unable to match the demand for TeamSTEPPS Master Training. Wait lists for training often exceed 500 individuals at any given time. To address this prevailing need, AHRQ has launched an effort to develop and provide TeamSTEPPS training online. This program, known as TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer course, will mirror the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 core curriculum and provide equivalent training to the in-person classes offered through the National Implementation Program. As part of this initiative, AHRQ seeks to conduct an evaluation of the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program. This evaluation seeks to understand the effectiveness of TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Training and what revisions might be required to improve the training program. This research has the following goals: (1) Conduct a formative assessment of the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program to determine what improvements should be made to the training and how it is delivered, and (2) Identify how trained participants use and implement the TeamSTEPPS tools and resources. This study is being conducted by AHRQ through its contractor, Reingold, Inc., pursuant to AHRQ’s statutory authority to conduct and support research on health care and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness, and value of health care services and with respect to quality measurement and improvement, 42 U.S.C. 299a(a)(1) and (2). Method of Collection To achieve this project’s goals, AHRQ will train participants using the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program and then survey these participants six months post-training. Each activity is briefly described below. PO 00000 Frm 00030 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 1. TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer Course. This training program, which includes 13 accredited hours of training, is based on the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 instructional materials and will be delivered online to 3,000 participants. The training will cover the core TeamSTEPPS tools and strategies, coaching, organizational change, and implementation science. 2. TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online PostTraining Survey. This online instrument will be administered to all participants who completed TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Training. The survey will be administered six months after participants complete the training. This is a new data collection for the purpose of conducting an evaluation of TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program. The evaluation will be primarily formative in nature as AHRQ seeks information to improve the delivery of the training. To conduct the evaluation, the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Post-Training Survey will be administered to all individuals who completed the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program six months after training. The purpose of the survey is to assess the degree to which participants felt prepared by the training and what they did to implement TeamSTEPPS. Specifically, participants will be asked about their reasons for participating in the program; the degree to which they feel the training prepared them to train others in and use TeamSTEPPS; what tools they have implemented in their organizations; and resulting changes they have observed in the delivery of care. Estimated Annual Respondent Burden Exhibit 1 shows the estimated annualized burden hours for the respondent’s time to participate in the study.

Abstract: The information collection activity will gamer qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but which is not based on statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. These collections will allow for ongoing, collaborative and actionable communications between the Agency and its customers and stakeholders. It will also allow feedback to contribute directly to the improvement of program management. The current clearance was approved on July 24th, 2011 (OMB Control Number 0935–0179) and will expire on July 31st, 2014. Feedback collected under this generic clearance will provide useful information, but it will not yield data that can be generalized to the overall population. This type of generic clearance for qualitative information does not apply to quantitative information collections that are designed to yield reliable results, such as monitoring trends over time or documenting program performance. Such data uses require more rigorous E:\FR\FM\22SEN1.SGM 22SEN1

Proposed Project

TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer Course

    As part of its effort to fulfill its mission goals, AHRQ, in 
collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense's TRICARE Management 
Activity, developed TeamSTEPP51) (aka, Team Strategies and Tools for 
Enhancing Performance and Patient Safety) to provide an evidence-based 
suite of tools and strategies for training teamwork-based patient 
safety to health care professionals. TeamSTEPPS includes multiple 
toolkits, which are all tied to or are variants of the core curriculum.

Master Trainer program to determine what improvements should be made to 
the training and how it is delivered, and
    (2) Identify how trained participants use and implement the

tools and strategies, coaching, organizational change, and 
implementation science.
    2. TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Post-Training Survey. This online 
instrument will be administered to all participants who completed 
TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Training. The survey will be administered 
six months after participants complete the training.
    This is a new data collection for the purpose of conducting an 
evaluation of TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program. The 
evaluation will be primarily formative in nature as AHRQ seeks 
information to improve the delivery of the training.
    To conduct the evaluation, the TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Post-Training 
Survey will be administered to all individuals who completed the 
TeamSTEPPS 2.0 Online Master Trainer program six months after training. 
The purpose of the survey is to assess the degree to which participants
