By having CME presentations it gives our providers opportunity to gain knowledge from other providers that may be practicing in similar rural settings and seeing the same types of patient problems. By providing evidenced based speakers on the above topics it will also give the providers a chance to implement best practice care to improve the patient’s outcomes.
By completing this activity the staff will be able to: gain and maintain increased knowledge related to the presentation topic, implement best practices to improve patient outcomes, and collaborate with fellow medical staff regarding the changes amongst health care.
