[Histonet] Teleconference CE

(Disclaimer to start - I'm the NSH Teleconference coordinator. But I don't 
get paid for this position.  I volunteer to do this, as I believe in 
continuing education for all histotechs.)

Thought I'd expand a little about the NSH teleconfereces. 4th Wed. of each 
month (Nov and Dec. might be 3rd Wed, depends on date), 1-2 pm Eastern time.


Your lab can have as many people attend for that price - histotechs, lab 
assistants, cytotechs, med techs, we've even had some of our 
transcriptionists attend, if the topic is of interest to them. Everyone 
attending earns 1 hour CE.

About 2 months after the teleconference, your lab gets a CD with the 
PowerPoint, additional handouts, and the speaker's voice synced to the 
PowerPoint. Anyone in your lab listening to the CD, up to 2 years after the 
date of the teleconference, can earn 1 hour CE, when they complete the test 
that is also on the CD, which is 4 multiple choice questions, which they 
then either mail in or fax into the NSH Office. This is great for those 
people who, during the teleconference, had to stay behind to run the lab, 
work off-shifts, were on vacation or medical leave, or were hired 2 months 
later. (I also keep the CD's, and use them for training people years later. 
They just don't earn CE from NSH, but the CD's are still good for training.)

So, that $125 per teleconference is really inexpensive, when you divide it 
by the number of people who can attend.
