Deadline Near for MHA Safety & Quality Symposium
Posted on August 22, 2019
The deadline is approaching to reserve discounted hotel accommodations for the Sept. 26 MHA Safety & Quality Symposium and the Sept. 25 MHA Workplace Safety Collaborative: Addressing Violence in Healthcare Settings workshop. Overnight rooms at the Detroit Marriott Troy are guaranteed at the MHA rate through Sept. 3. Reserve a room at the group rate online or call the hotel at (800) 236-2427 and mention the Michigan Health & Hospital Association when making a room reservation.
With premier speakers, continuing education credit and a registration fee that is half the price of most national patient safety conferences, the MHA Safety & Quality Symposium is an exceptional value. The event contains important and timely content, including preparing for violent incidents through focused communication and safety protocols. With an increase in mass shootings, teams must be prepared to both respond and care for survivors and those impacted by the violence. Eric Alberts, corporate manager, emergency preparedness at Orlando Health in Florida, will share how his team prepared for and reacted to the Pulse nightclub tragedy. Other sessions outline strategies to effectively cope with medical errors and how to access resources and partner to combat the opioid epidemic.
A total of 4.75 nursing contact hours have been awarded for this activity by the Michigan Public Health Institute – Continuing Education Solutions (MPHI-CES 6277). Additionally, this event is eligible for up to 4.75 continuing medical education credit, category II.
Register now to attend or participate virtually. For more information on the symposium, contact Erin Steward at the MHA. Questions on registration should be directed to Janice Jones at the MHA.
