The Twin Cities IIA Young Professionals Group is hosting a night out at the Ballpark!  Back by popular demand, we have rented out a section of the first level outfield bleachers to watch the first place Twins take on the Kansas City Royals. 

To start the night, the middle section of the downtown Cowboy Jacks has been reserved for a few hours before the game.  This is a great networking opportunity and a chance to learn more about the Young Professionals Group!

We will be socializing at Cowboy Jacks until the Twins game starts.  At which time, you are invited to join us in a section that has been reserved for our group.

The networking portion is $10 for IIA members and $15 for non-IIA members.  The game will be an additional $5 to attend.  Food will be provided, and drinks will be at the Happy Hour prices.  Invite your co-workers, clients, and others in your Internal Audit Network to join.

Drug diversion is a national crisis affecting public health and social and economic welfare. Drug diversion activities not only cause potential harm to patients and healthcare professionals, but also to the organizations that employ them – causing healthcare organizations to face legal, financial, operational and reputational risks and regulatory fines. Now consider that about 15% of all healthcare workers will misuse drugs or alcohol at some point in their career.  To effectively address these issues and mitigate risks, healthcare organizations must have a comprehensive interdisciplinary drug diversion management program that includes rigorous controls, routine audits, and monitoring.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify the impact of drug diversion on patients and healthcare organizations
  • Explain the common points of risks and methods of drug diversion in healthcare’s controlled substance life cycle
  • Describe the best practices for drug diversion prevention and detection
  • Understand the best practices of an employer drug testing program.

Who should attend:

Chief Executive Officers, Chief Financial Officers, Chief Compliance Officers, Chief Audit Executives, Chief Risk Officers, VPs/Directors of Finance, , Chief Nursing Officers, VPs/Directors of Compliance and other management professionals of acute care healthcare providers, academic medical centers and other healthcare provider organizations
