On April 10, 2008 at 1:00 PM ET, EH&E is sponsoring a Free Webinar entitled: Using Practice Interview Sessions to Strengthen Your Survey Preparedness within the Environment of Care. EH&E has found the use of practice interview sessions with hospital staff to be a great preparation technique for The Joint Commission (JC) surveys in the Environment of Care (EC). This standard area spans a wide range of disciplines and departments in the hospital, and any survey involving the JC’s tracer methodology will require participation by many to succeed.
