Hospital and psychiatric hospital attendees will hear a report out on the implementation of the SAFER Matrix. You will also learn how the 2012 Life Safety Code® affects the behavioral health environment of care and life safety requirements.

Thank you for supporting JCR’s paperless initiative for our education programs. Here are some tips for your learning success:
  • Bring your fully charged electronic device (laptop, tablet, etc.) with you to the program so that you can access the program materials and take notes.
  • Download/access program materials from your email, the JCR Learning Management System (LMS), and/or the event app. 1-2 weeks before your program, you will receive an email with instructions on how to access these materials. These materials will continue to be available to you during and after your program as well.
