Product Description

CMS’ New Standards are Here: Is Your Food & Nutrition Services Department Ready?

This webinar will show you how to develop, implement, and maintain effective data driven QAPI programs within healthcare Food and Nutrition operations, Hospital Dietary Service operations, and Behavioral Centers that focus on supporting outcomes of care and quality of live.
