Randolph Rasch, PhD, RN, FAANP, dean and professor at the Michigan State University College of Nursing, kicked off the event by discussing health equity and examining disparities in healthcare. Participants were made aware of new implicit bias self-assessment tools and strategies for facilitating transparent conversations among staff. 

Additional presentations covered opioid use disorder, maternal hypertension, failure to rescue and safety culture programs.
