The Together, Equitable, Accessible, Meaningful (TEAM) Training aims to improve health equity by supporting organizational changes at the systems level. The training will help organizations implement quality improvements to advance equitable, accessible and patient-centered cancer care through improved patient-provider communication, cultural sensitivity, shared decision-making and attention to health literacy.
More About TEAM
The TEAM Training is for organizations that provide cancer care services or address cancer disparities. Services can include: community/population health interventions with a cancer-related focus, navigation, education, screening, diagnostic testing, treatment, psychosocial support and survivorship care.
Organizations must be located in the United States, tribes or territories to participate. Organizations may range in size (e.g., specific oncology department, entire practice or hospital) and care setting (e.g., community-based clinic, in-patient facility).
We are committed to convening a cohort of diverse health professionals. Organizations are strongly encouraged to engage a diverse team, including individuals diverse in race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, ability/disability and professional role.
Applications for the second TEAM Training cohort are now closed. View Cohort II participants.
