Advocates Collaborative Educational Series (ACES)
Who Should Attend: Patient Advocates, regardless of background or training
When: The last Monday of each month
Time: 5:00 PM Eastern Time - Feel free to join early for check in and casual conversation
ACES consists of an engaging, virtual 1-hour meeting. The program commences with a presentation by subject experts, followed by a guided group discussion and case studies where participants have the opportunity to share their own experiences. Each session concludes with a brief Q&A period. Participants are encouraged to network and exchange information before and after the session. To gather feedback and insights on meetings, presenters, issues, and future topics, we utilize polls and surveys.
Pulse ACES program is approved for 1.0 Ethics CE by the Patient Advocate Certification Board (PACB) to satisfy the requirements for Board Certified Patient Advocates (BCPA).
To help offset the costs of our programs we do request a fee of $20 to process CEs for Board Certified Patient Advocates (BCPAs). If due to hardship you cannot pay the fee, please contact Pulse at 516.579.4711 before the program so arrangements can be made. We do not want to turn anyone away. Evaluation must be completed to receive certificate and will be available for 24 hours after the program.
Because we are concentrating on the March 14th and 15th Family Centered Patient Advocacy Training, all programs will resume in April. Hope to see you then!
Join us for the upcoming ACES session and be a part of an engaging discussion on healthcare topics that matter. Register now to secure your spot and receive the Zoom link directly in your email.
