These networking events feature an educational session worth 1 EDAC CEU/AIA HSW + plenty of social time to meet the local healthcare design community.
What’s new in healthcare design? What’s changing? Who’s doing what and where? And what do your local colleagues think about it all?
Hospital Staff Injuries: The Real Costs
Christy Foster, Director, Healthcare, BSI EHS Services and Solutions will outline how many healthcare organizations have not realized the true cost of worker injuries, and as a result may not fully recognize the need and value of investing in solutions -- programs, equipment, materials and design -- that help reduce these injuries.
This presentation will explore the real and hidden expenses associated with the costliest healthcare related injuries. It will also provide insight into how to build a business case for investing in staff injury prevention for senior management. Learn how leading organizations are implementing effective programs and design solutions to reduce costs quickly.
Join us for your chance to catch up on the latest industry buzz, connect with colleagues in a casual setting over wine and hors d’oeuvres, and still get home in time for your favorite show.
