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.
  • If you prefer hard-copy program materials, please print before the program and bring with you. There will be no hard-copy program materials provided on site, other than the agenda itself.
  • Full-text requirements books (with relevant Joint Commission standards for the program) will no longer be provided, either in hard copy or electronically. Please plan accordingly if you want to reference the standards during the program (for example, bring your own manual or plan to access E-dition).  
  • Come ready to learn, network with peers, and be prepared for 2017 compliance challenges.
