In the complex and dynamic world of health care, staying current is critical to minimizing risk and serving patients
Because staying current is key to mitigating risk, our consultants compile and develop resources so you have the latest information on trends and emerging issues. We offer live and on-demand webinars, continuing education modules, and publish our risk and patient safety magazine, Common Factors™, formerly called Brink®, two times each year.
We also offer sample policy and procedure templates you can customize for your practice or organization, as well as foreign language translations to help ensure all your patients fully understand their conditions or proposed procedures.
