Learning About the Train-the-Trainer Interprofessional Team Development Program (T3 Program)
The national Train-the-Trainer Interprofessional Team Development Training Program (“T3 Program”) addresses the growing, national need for trained health professions: faculty, clinicians, and staff members from all professions, to lead interprofessional (IPE) efforts and promote team-based care. Hosted by three university sites around the country: the University of Washington (Seattle, WA), the University of Virginia (Charlottesville, VA), and the University of Texas at UT Austin (Austin, TX). The 3.5-day, interactive program uses team science and LEAN project management strategies to develop and prepare teams to implement IPE and collaborative practice projects effectively in their home institutions. The T3 curriculum was co-developed by experts from the three training sites in collaboration with a national advisory committee of interprofessional experts.
During the NEXUS Resource Exchange, attendees will have the opportunity to talk with facilitators from all three training sites, learn if the T3 Program could be a good fit for their team or organization, discuss potential project ideas, and meet T3 alumni.
The T3 Program was established with support from a generous grant from the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation (grant B15-02), and in collaboration with the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education. This program is led by grant Co-Directors Brenda Zierler, PhD, RN, FAAN & Les Hall, MD.
