Q&A Communities of Interest (COIs)


Q&A COIs have all the capabilities of Resource COIs, but are more focused on allowing educators to discuss topics of interest in real time. They are a great place to ask questions, advance your facility to care for patients, and compare practices with others. With Q&A COIs you will find solutions to common problems and be able to share ideas.
