Brenda Gray, RN, MSN, CCM, CPHM –
For the past few years, I have made presentations to a couple of nursing school classes about DMST and how they can help as professional nurses. Just two weeks ago I used the SH material for the first time and it was a great success. The students loved the film clips and the iCARE material was very pertinent.
