WEBINAR: Documenting Provider Competency

One of the biggest challenges medical staff faces is evaluating the competency of providers. It is difficult, or sometimes impossible, to acquire useful competency data.

The increased focus on quality by accrediting organizations, the government, and the public, emphasizes the need for continual monitoring of the quality of services provided as well as having a strong privileging system. The resources for this webinar include many forms, policies, and procedures that can be used by the participants.
