Organizations must be prepared to address allegations of fraud, misconduct, harassment, retaliation, safety and code violations, among others.  It is imperative that all organizations, regardless of their place in the healthcare industry, develop an internal investigations program to address these circumstances properly, as failure to do so can escalate the problem and increase exposure to legal liability. Join former HHS Inspector General, Richard Kusserow, and his faculty for best practices, sample policies, and continuing education credits.  Over the course of this 3-part webinar series, the faculty of career federal investigators and attorneys will provide guidance on how to develop an internal investigation program, respond to employee complaints, prepare for investigations, conduct interviews, write final reports to close investigations, and communicate findings to executives and boards of directors.  Each webinar in the series will clearly detail the phases of an internal investigation, pitfalls to avoid, and how to execute with excellence while mitigating risk.  Register today for this webinar on executing effective internal investigations:
