Guideline Implementation Workshops: Green Series

Guideline Implementation Workshops: Green Series

Read it. See it. Do it.

The Guideline Implementation Workshops use a variety of learning techniques throughout the day to ensure all participants learn the concepts, techniques, and proper implementation of the Guidelines.

During the didactic portions, the Guideline authors explain the science behind the creation of the guideline and explain the “how” and “why”. The hands-on portion provides attendees the opportunity to participate in product demonstrations and put what they’ve learned into practice.

There are Guideline Implementation Workshops around the country. Which one will you be attending?
