The Tools to Succeed
This really provided me with a lot of information to hopefully effect change at my hospital and ED. New to the job, I definitely feel I have the tools to succeed and make a difference in my ED. I really thought the conference was invaluable and think it will be useful for my partners to attend also even though they are not directors.
