Description

PURPOSE: Train-the-Trainer (TTT) is a model to initial trainees to train others. A TTT model may be beneficial for clinicians in healthcare. The purpose of this literature review was to examine TTT model effectiveness in clinical settings, with the ultimate goal of finding what models is most effective in training the trainers and uptake of knowledge for clinicians. SUBJECTS: Published articles. METHODS: A literature search was conducted in CINAHL, PubMed, and Google Scholar, using the terms “train,” “train the trainer,” “train the trainer model,” and “train the trainer program”. ANALYSES: Over 100 articles were identified; with 30 included in this review. RESULTS: In all studies TTT was effective. Some studies found trainers and trainees alike were receptive to interprofessional training and the combination of workshops or training sessions coupled with follow-up supervision were found to be more effective than other training models. CONCLUSIONS: TTT was found to be an effective approach to training clinicians in healthcare.
