How We Work

TEAMM teaches full-spectrum EPL care through a multi-faceted and systems approach: didactic, experiential, and hands-on learning for the entire healthcare team involved in patient care. To do this, we offer tailored training interventions to clinical sites, which include these training sessions:

  1. "Early Pregnancy Loss Management: What  Everyone Needs to Know." This session includes a didactic plus papaya workshop and is designed for the entire site team.
  2. "Early Pregnancy Loss Implementation: How to Get it Done." This session engages staff in a facilitated conversation detailing the steps of practice integration, covering things like protocols, equipment, clinic/ER flow and patient counseling. It is designed for a select group of providers and support staff at each clinical site.

After site trainings, TEAMM offers follow-up technical assistance tailored to a site's specific needs in order to make implementation of services a reality.

"I guess before the class I was very skeptical about how this was going to fit into emergency department practice, and then when I left I was actually pleasantly surprised about how this is very feasible and potentially something that could benefit a lot of patients that we see."

"I thought it was effective, very helpful. I completely understand why you all included everyone, now it makes perfect sense, but so many times these trainings occur with only MDs, and we have a hard time figuring out on our own how to translate that into practice. But the fact that you incorporated everyone to begin with facilitated everything immensely, including emergency medicine."
