Social Learning



When networking is more than networking, it’s social learning. You don’t want your facility’s Environmental services team working in silo – Environmental services professionals need to be afforded opportunities to confer with their peers regularly just as clinicians do. From beginning to end Exchange offers endless opportunities for meaningful social interactions.
