4 Reasons You Can’t-Miss Our Continuing Education Series

This year hasn’t been easy for anyone, and we know the challenges facing hospitals and their teams have been particularly heightened. That’s what led us to create True You, True Grit—a continuing education series designed to provide both inspiration and education to help you meet both the needs of this moment and the ones still to come.

Powered by Beyond Clean, the learning opportunities within True Grit, True You help central sterile processing professionals like you grow in your career while maintaining compliance with your yearly recertification credits. If you still have credits you need to fulfill or are just looking for continuing education to increase your knowledge base and prepare for a promotion, here are four reasons why you can’t miss True Grit, True You.

Expert Leadership

In the True Grit, True You series, you won’t just hear from one type of expert or the same person over and over. We’ve taken care to create a diverse group of instructors and presenters including healthcare professionals, surgical tracking experts, and more. You’ll hear from people who have been where you are, understand the challenges you’re facing, and have the tools to help you navigate them.

Variety of Topics

All of the content offered in our continuing education series is CE-accredited. Depending on the offerings you choose, presentations range from 1 to 1.5 credits each. Plus, with a variety of topics to choose from, you can pick whatever suits your current position and future career goals the best! Presentations currently available to watch on-demand include:

  • Loaner Management: Getting the Most out of Loaner Management
  • How to Remain AAMI Compliant and Joint Commission Ready with an Electronic Tracking System
  • Dirty Data: How to Clean and Optimize Your Department DataLeadership and Conflict Management: Dealing with Difficult People During Difficult Times
  • Lean and Perioperative Services: The Perfect Patient Safety Partners
  • Quality and Compliance When Processing High-Level Disinfected Items
  • The Importance of Effective Interdepartmental Relationships: SPD & OR
  • Tracking Medical Devices Using the Unique Device Identifier (UDI)

Accessible Learning

To make learning as easy as possible, we created the True Grit, True you app that’s available in both iTunes and Google Play so you can learn from anywhere with just your phone. Once you’re within the app, you have everything right at your fingertips. You can register for upcoming sessions, watch on-demand content, engage with the discussion boards, and connect with colleagues—all in one space.

Networking Opportunity

When we were creating True Grit, True You, we wanted to offer something a little extra. Part of the attraction of in-person continuing education opportunities is that you get to meet other professionals, broaden your network, and share ideas. So, we built in some extra features in the app to mimic that experience in the digital world. You’ll get the chance to connect with other central sterile professionals directly as well as in groups through our discussion boards facilitated by a certified professional.
