Enabling Clinician Compliance through Behavioral Change

  •   Webinar

While many healthcare providers have established processes for rolling out changes and training team members accordingly, often times the process falls short. It’s often because team members’ behaviors were only superficially adjusted. Organizations will only realize lasting and positive change when they learn the secrets to transforming human behavior at its core.  This webinar teaches how to manage and affect this change and ensure your clinicians are compliant.

Ensuring success through these undertakings requires a formula to positively affect change.
