This three-day training welcomes you into a small learning circle as an interactive participant for SCF’s Core Concepts Workshop, where communication techniques and tools are taught as a foundation for building and maintaining effective relationships.

Earn up to 19 continued medical education (CME) hours and discover the heart of the SCF Nuka System of Care. Most of our conference attendees participate in the pre-conference. Here are some of the things you won’t want to miss:

  • Learn the tools and communication methods SCF utilizes as a foundation for building and maintaining relationships with customer-owners

Participants will be required to sign an SCF Confidentiality Agreement/Authorization and Release Form during check-in/registration before the start of the site visit. This is to ensure protection of customer-owner health information and SCF’s proprietary information. SCF staff will be filming and photographing parts of the event.
