Attendees will gain an understanding of their facilities' GTT Monthly Report data and charts, discover simple techniques to further display and learn from their GTT data, and explore strategies for using GTT findings with other patient safety data to identify opportunities for improvement. Attendees will also hear how MTFs of any size can use their data.
