Frequently Asked Questions

Know Before You Go

This is a brand-new conference experience so we imagine that you might have some questions. If you don’t see the answer that you’re looking for here, let us know with a quick email to AdvancingCare@aha.org.

  • The in-person conference was held March 7-9, 2022, in Chicago. The in-person conference is bookended with optional virtual experiences starting in January and wrapping up in May. This structure ensures each participant creates a customized plan and is supported through successful implementation.

  • The interprofessional attendees of the Advancing Care Conference are the health care professionals who put ideas into action at their organizations. Conference attendees include:

    • Quality and Safety Staff
    • Frontline Health Care Staff and Leaders
    • Performance Improvement Professionals
    • Health Care Educators
  • Yes and no. The former AHA Team Training National Conference has sunsetted, transformed and expanded into what is now the AHA Advancing Care Conference. For those who have attended previous TeamSTEPPS and AHA Team Training National Conferences, you’ll notice similar themes and familiar faces in addition to expanded content. There will be a continued approach to provide the TeamSTEPPS and team training content you've come to expect while also making valuable connections with other topic areas and the health care field at large. If you are familiar with AHA Team Training and its national conference, you will find everything you love about those experiences...and so much more!

  • We plan for each attendee to walk away with two key takeaways:

    1. An actionable plan – Starting virtually in January, you will narrow in on a specific challenge you want to solve. At the in-person conference in March, you will be equipped with interactive sessions and design thinking tools to build your plan. When you leave Chicago, you will walk away with immediate and long-term action steps to implement your custom plan
    2. A community of accountability - The AHA Advancing Care Conference takes conference networking one step further. Not only will you meet health care professionals just like you, but you will also work together both at the in-person conference and in the Advancing Care Conference Mighty Network - our virtual collaboration space to support and empower each other before and after the in-person event.
  • The dress code for the conference is business casual.

  • Participants will earn 13.0 credits by attending the conference and completing all CE requirements.
