Most organizations don't take the time to assure that their policies and procedures are effective. Meaning, the policies are followed, enforced, and most importantly, that the policies are read by the employees. Knowing how to create effective policies is a process, and usually involves more than one person. The process starts at the top of the organization and goes all the way through to the front line staff. Getting buy-in from administration and human resources are essential, but not enough. The policies have to be understood by every level of intelligence within an organization. Once a policy is written, you aren't done; getting a policy put into an employee handbook is really just the beginning of the process to ensure its effectiveness. This webinar will discuss the process most policies should take and what is critical to be included in every policy.
Why should you Attend: Many laws and industry regulators require healthcare organizations to have policies and procedures on various topics. The question is always asked, "how do I know what I need to write a policy on?" Even if you know what law or regulation you need to write a policy on, you may have never written a policy or procedure and don't know where to start. Regardless of the size or scope of your organization, writing policies that are easy to read, use, find are invaluable, and not every organization has effective policies. This webinar will give the essentials for creating effective policies and procedures.
