It’s here! I-TEAM By Design™ - A NEW approach to enhance interpersonal skills in healthcare

After months of development, animating and building, CAIPER has officially launched its newest training – I-TEAM By Design™: Interprofessional Training in Empathy, Affect and Mindfulness.

What is it

I-TEAM By Design™ is a 4-hour, accredited and fully animated short course focused on cultivating and optimizing interprofessional skills related to empathy, connectivity, emotional intelligence, humility, and self/other awareness.

Why we made it

Health professionals and health professions students are often told, “Be more empathic” and “Be more of a team player” or "Show you care, but don’t be too emotional” – but what do these even MEAN?

We made I-TEAM By Design™ to address that question! 

The course starts by dissecting the concepts and debates surrounding such hot topics as empathy, humility, emotions, mindfulness, and then outlining how and why these attributes and practices are ‘good’ for patient-centered, team-based healthcare delivery as well as personal well-being. 

Why it works

Learners are actively engaged in evidence-based, rich content through animated modules. After being introduced to key research, scholars and concepts, learners practice strategies in hands-on “workouts”  and then test what they’ve learned through gamified knowledge checks. 

What do learners get

  • An unforgettably fun education in empathy, emotions, humility and mindfulness for team-based and patient-centered healthcare. 

  • 8 Continuing Education credits currently available in 6 different health and social care professions. 
  • Digital Credential issued by the Arizona State University Center for Advancing Interprofessional Practice, Education and Research.
  • I-TEAM By Design™ Certificate of completion for the course and for the Continuing Education credits.

Who’s it for

The program is designed for healthcare professionals and students of all levels. The program includes both individual and team-based workouts to engage and practice skills with the entire team.

The course can be taken individually or incorporated into workforce trainings, classroom curricula, or teaching in clinical rounds.
