Bumps in Best Practice

“BUMPS in Best Practice” will provide ideas for interviewers who are struggling with improving their interview skills, want to evolve longstanding practices at their CAC, and/or just can’t get the hang of using more open-ended invitations. This three-hour training will be part formal training and review, part peer networking, and part “Ask the Expert”. Attendees will have an opportunity to engage in conversation with peers and the trainer, with a goal of leaving re-energized and with new ideas to address the inevitable “BUMPS” that arise for interviewers on multidisciplinary teams.
