FAQ:

1.       Do I need to attend both sessions? Ideally yes, however we’ve divided the session in two parts to support those who can only attend a portion.

2.       I can’t attend in person, will there be an online option? Yes! We’ve booked videoconference rooms in each geography.

3.      I’m a new handler, can I attend? We’d recommend completing PSLS Handler training prior to attended the Patient Safety Skills Booster.
