Seventh annual McKnight's Online Expo on the way

The seventh annual McKnight's Online Expo will kick off with five webcasts March 20 and 21. As in the previous six highly successful Expos, this year's will offer long-term care providers valuable information and continuing education credits at no cost. Online registration is ongoing at McKnights.com/expo2013.

Executives, medical professionals and distinguished academics are presenting webcasts this year. Topics include finding capital, wound care, handling immediate jeopardy issues, MDS 3.0 and the use of computer avatars in the long-term care setting. The webcasts will be archived for convenient viewing, but participants must attend the initial, live session to earn CE credits, per accreditation rules.
 
The information will keep flowing after March, with six months of Super Tuesday webcasts scheduled to follow the Expo.

Expo participants can also take advantage of the online exhibition hall to connect with vendors and get insight into the latest products.
 
“There is no question that providers enjoy the Online Expo experience,” says McKnight's Editorial Director John O'Connor.  “We continually get emails and notes asking for more each year.”
