New this year! - Patient Safety Credits

Did you know, maintenance of licensure in some states (including Pennsylvania and Texas) and membership in ASPS requires patient safety credit hours?
ASSH is ready to meet your changing education needs with the help of our course faculty.
In Patient Safety education, emphasis is placed on the system of care delivery that
  1. prevents errors;
  2. learns from the errors that do occur; and
  3. is built on a culture of safety that involves health care professionals, organizations, and patients.
Click here to read a complete description of what qualifies as Patient Safety education.
If any portion of your lecture qualifies as patient safety education in accordance with what is provided in the description above, let us know so that we can note this for participants’ CME claim for their patient safety credits. Credits are compiled for the course as a whole so even as few as 2 minutes of your lecture could add up.
Include this information when you submit your handouts.
