Spotlight on Workplace Violence in Health Care
The work you do is so important for your patients, but your health and wellbeing are extremely important, too.

Last week was our first ever PATH Learning Circle, which focused on Workplace Violence: Addressing a Growing Problem in Health Care. Get a quick review on this important topic and links to different tools and resources that address safety and trauma-informed care.

Next PATH Learning Circle - The Pathway Home:
The Patient Experience from Discharge to Follow-up
Thursday, April 28 | 2-3 p.m. CT, 1-2 p.m. MT, 12-1 p.m. PT

One of the most vulnerable times in a person's life is being admitted to the hospital due to illness. Looking at things from the patient's perspective helps staff communicate in a more meaningful and patient-centered way. A patient-centered approach can reduce readmission, decrease medication errors, improve appointment follow-up and strengthen progress toward patient self-advocacy. Join us for best practices for improving the patient experience!
PATH Learning Circles are all-share, all-learn events where participants
  • hear from subject matter experts on important topics,
  • access best and promising practices and other resources,
  • practice new skills,
  • have opportunities for networking.
