The Beryl Institute’s Patient Experience Virtual Conference Series provides for a day of focused learning and discussion on a specific patient experience topic. Each virtual conference offers four unique learning sessions sharing strategies, best practices and solutions to support your patient experience efforts. The benefits are similar to attending a professional development conference without the expense of travel or time away from the office.
Most Virtual Conferences offered by The Beryl Institute are eligible for four Patient Experience Continuing Education Credit (PXEs) pending approval.
