CNPS Advocacy Webinar
Advocacy on behalf of a patient is a known concept in nursing practice but can acting as an advocate more broadly present additional risks? This webinar will examine advocacy from several angles. The use of social media as a platform for advocacy will be explored as well as the additional legal considerations that may stem from its use.
