Please join us for a special webinar featuring Kathy Wire, JD, MBA, CPHRM, Center for Patient Safety (CPS) attorney, on October 1, 2014. This event is an opportunity to learn more about CPS and how your agency can benefit from participation in a Patient Safety Organization (PSO).

Did you know there is little to no legal protection for peer review or safety and quality improvement work in EMS?   The CPS is a Federal listed PSO that offers you and your service protection for this important work.

Do you have an EMS PSO question for Kathy?   If so, please email questions before the webinar to Lee Varner at [email protected].

Questions?   Call the Center for Patient Safety at 888.935.8272.
