In hospitals, health care centers and long-term care facilities, competency assessments help verify that clinical staff has the skills needed to perform their jobs effectively and deliver quality patient care.
To deliver on that promise, both managers and employees need to clearly understand their individual accountabilities in the competency assessment process.
Equally important is the need to identify what can get in the way of fostering this accountability.
On August 9th, join Donna Wright, author of "The Ultimate Guide to Competency Assessment in Healthcare", for a complimentary webinar as she reveals best practices for instituting better accountability in your competency assessment program.
In this one-hour presentation, Donna will:
- Define employee and manager accountabilities in competency assessment.
- Discuss the overall model of accountability that makes competency assessment successful.
- Identify ways to communicate and document this accountability through the forms and tools used.
- Discuss ways to follow-up with competency deficits and identify what gets in the way.
Presenter: Donna Wright, RN, MS, Consultant, Creative Health Care Management
Date: August 9, 2012 at 2 p.m. ET
