The Together, Equitable, Accessible, Meaningful (TEAM) Training supports equitable, accessible and patient-centered cancer care. The training provides guidance, tools and resources to help individuals and organizations implement quality improvements around patient-provider communication, health literacy, cultural sensitivity and shared decision-making. TEAM training will review a variety of factors that can impact health, and is appropriate for organizations looking to address rural health disparities.

The training includes:

  • Online, self-paced course with required readings
  • 3 webinars
  • Organizational assessment conducted as a team
  • 2.5 day in-person workshop in Washington, D.C.
  • 3 virtual technical assistance sessions
  • 3 homework assignments to foster reflection and discussion

Over the course of 15 weeks each participant is expected to spend approximately 50 hours in independent learning which can include the online course, group work and preparing for discussions. There will be approximately 30 hours spent in direct instruction.

The training timeline is provided in the syllabus.
