Session 1: 
SafetyNET - Enhancing Quality and Understanding of Patient Safety: a focus on Spinal Manipulation Therapy (SMT)
Guest Speaker: Katherine Pohlman, DC, MS, PhD(c)
Date: Thursday, August 31, 2017
Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT / 12:00pm - 1:00pm MT
Sponsored by: University of North Texas Health Science Center Institute for Patient Safety
 
Description: Improved quality of care through patient safety is a priority for the American healthcare systems. Although most health care happens in community-based offices, patient safety research in these settings has been limited. SMT is a therapy delivered by several community-based healthcare professionals with over 50% of the American population receiving SMT sometime in their life. This webinar will present ongoing and past SMT patient safety research, including current opportunities for provider participation.
