Thought Leadership Series Webinar - Best Practices to Proactively Monitor Diversion

Do you know how to proactively monitor for diversion in your facility? Everyone knows diversion can be a major challenge, but not everyone knows how to start the process and take preventive steps to reduce the risk for healthcare facilities, providers, and patients. Join diversion expert Kimberly New, and our guest speaker, Tyler Martinson from Sentara Healthcare, for guidance on establishing Best Practices to Proactively Monitor Diversion.

  • Discover best practice policies and procedures for preventing, detecting, and managing prescription drug diversion.

  • Learn how to collaborate with colleagues across all departments as a task force to combat drug diversion before it happens at your facility.

  • Learn how to develop a program to monitor effectiveness of diversion prevention efforts and patient safety considerations.
