(Appropriate technology such as a desktop or laptop computer is required for participants.)

This training is appropriate for any member of the healthcare team including Physician, Nurse, Pharmacist, Psychologist, or other allied health professional, as well as non-clinical professionals who support healthcare teams, such executive leaders and healthcare consultants.
