As of March 17th, after much consideration and discussion, The Joint Commission and Joint Commission Resources have made the difficult decision to cancel all education programs scheduled through April 30, 2020.
The health, safety, and well-being of our participants are our highest priority. Considering the growing number of COVID-19 cases across the U.S. and around the world, it became very clear that cancelling the education events was the right thing to do. We know that our participants are needed in their local communities to help their institutions and patients prepare for and react to the growing COVID-19 spread.
We support you in your mission and wish you all the best during this challenging time. Thank you for your commitment to your patients and your communities.
