Join Duane C. Abbey, Ph.D. for this 60-minute vital event where he'll review the levels and types of services in the ED and differentiate between emergent, urgent and clinical levels of services.

Learn how EMTALA rules and requirements dovetail with non-emergent levels of care.
Also, Duane will examine several case studies illustrating the challenges for non-emergent care in hospitals’ EDs.
