  • CEU Offering

    At the national ANIA conference this last April in Florida many of our board members got the opportunity to meet and brainstorm with other ANIA chapters. One of the ideas was to start collaborating on continuing education.  We all felt this would benefit everyone by giving access to more CE opportunities related to the field of informatics, allow us to see what other hospitals are doing outside of our own communities, and eventually partner on panel discussions making them more robust.  So, in addition to the CE opportunities your DFW chapter will be offering we will also be sending out information for you to partake in these additional CE opportunities offered by partnering ANIA chapters.  The Miami ANIA chapter has sent us a flyer to distribute for a CE offered on July 1st. I hope many of you will be able to attend.  Don’t forget our next DFW ANIA webinar will be July 23rd a flyer will be going out shortly with all the details. 

    Upcoming CE opportunities to look for:

    • July 1st – Nurses’ views on change management in health care settings: A qualitative study sponsored by Miami ANIA chapter
    • July 23rd – Medical City and University of MA Hospital at home journey, update on study “Nurses' experiences using their EHRs from 2015 to 2020” and Regulatory Updates offered by DFW ANIA
    • August date TBD – Provider Onboarding: How we successfully adapted during a pandemic offered by Miami ANIA chapter
    • November 12th – TBD offered by DFW ANIA
  • Free Play in Arlington Community Social Event
