A Patient and Caregiver Safety Update
Workplace violence continues to be a critical Patient Safety AND Caregiver issue. Our industry has 4-5 times the frequency of other sectors. Richard Mereu, Chief Government Relations Officer of Government Relations for the Emergency Nurses Association, will address the key issues in their domain. Chief William Adcox and his colleagues at MD Anderson Cancer Center are global experts in Threat Safety Science that includes workplace violence.
A panel of patient advocates and experts will react to the presentations.
We offer these online webinars at no cost to our participants.
