Speak Up! How to Advocate for Your Patients

2 credit hours

Health care workers have a right and a responsibility to speak up regarding the treatment a patient is receiving. Because doing so is not always easy, the course teaches practical communication strategies that help health care workers overcome fear and express their concerns in a manner most likely to be heard and responded to by their colleagues. Presenters: Suzanne Gordon, author and speaker with special expertise in healthcare systems, teamwork, patient safety, and nursing;  Latika Malkani, partner at law firm Siegel, LeWitter & Malkani.
