What do health care providers need to know to stay current?

The field of healthcare is changing dramatically.

  • Heather Young, Ph.D., R.N., F.A.A.N., the Associate Vice Chancellor for Nursing U.C. Davis and Dean of the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing

• The role of educational institutions in addressing these new developments and training the next generation of providers.
