This Masterclass will focus on the following core areas:

  • Patient and Healthcare Team Safety
  • Core Practices of Infection Prevention and Control
  • Healthcare Leadership
  • Principles of Clinical Supply Chain
  • Evidence-Based Practices
  • Clinical Risk Management
  • Teamwork and Communication

Each month, we will be hosting two 1.5-hour, continuing education interactive webinar programs. The first program of each month will focus on a specific clinical content area and then the second program of the month will center around the implementation of evidence-based practices across the continuum of care. The COVID-19 Pandemic has taught healthcare systems and professionals many valuable lessons, but the complexity of healthcare’s systems requires a systematic approach to improving safety, reducing the costs of care delivery, and optimizing the quality of clinical care provided across the entire healthcare. Every month, the series will build upon previous topics and conclude with a comprehensive year in review of healthcare safety, infection control, and application of evidence-based practices in December.
