Welcome the Ofstead & Associates online training portal!

We have six new webinars planned for 2021 and every webinar in the current library and the upcoming new topics are all free.

A couple recent additions of note: "Uncovering device adverse events to improve safety for patients and personnel": This CE-eligible webinar demystifies the FDA MAUDE database to empower healthcare providers, personnel, and patients to access and report adverse events related to medical devices, AND "Respiratory protection: Unmasked": This CE-eligible webinar explains how masks and respirators reduce the risk of infection transmission and highlights key factors that should be considered when making decisions about respiratory protection.

And speaking of FREE, we've added a selection of resources available from Ofstead for free download and curated a selection of external resources you might find of interest.
