Moving Beyond HSEEP: Creating Well-Functioning Teams


What does this tool do?
This is a comprehensive train-the-trainer package to be used by those who educate and conduct exercises involving public health department staff with emergency response roles. The intent of this training package is to improve team communications, functionality, efficiency and effectiveness by teaching and giving participants opportunities to practice key communication strategies and tools. It provides participants with basic knowledge about high reliability teams and organizations, as well as step-by-step functional exercise guidelines.

This tool can be used as initial training for staff with new response roles, new to the department, or as a refresher training. The package includes instructor materials (training content and script, instructor manual), student materials, debrief facilitation guidance, exercise packet, and pre- and post-training assessments. The training takes approximately 60-90 minutes to deliver and can be delivered in a classroom setting or via distance learning methods.

Who should use this tool?
This tool assists public health departments or other agencies in training staff that have response roles in team function and communications.
