Preventing Medical Errors for Florida SLPs

Preventing Medical Errors in Speech-Language PathologyPreventing Medical Errors in Speech-Language Pathology is a 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that addresses the impact of medical errors on today’s healthcare with a focus on root cause analysis, error reduction and prevention, and patient safety.
