Visual Display/Education Station for your QIA(s)
How is your Education Station Progressing?
Are you working with your staff and patients to develop an Education Station? Are there Barriers or Successes? March is the month to review your progress - what stage are you at? (Planning, Launching, or Procrastinating?)
Pro Tip: Remember to ask for suggestions and integrate any feedback or innovation. This can be a bulletin board, a table display or something outside of the box (INNOVATION Is the key to success!)
