Today’s Pharmacy Podcast episode is a unique opportunity to listen into a Thought Leadership roundtable recording sponsored by Omnicell about “Crisis Control – How to Handle Unwarranted HCP Diversion at Your Hospital”.
Everyone knows diversion is a major challenge in today’s health care environment, but not everyone knows how to confidently detect, manage, and prevent diversion incidents. Omnicell is proud to announce a four-part webinar series on Diversion Management with special guest Kimberly New.

Kim has a BS in Nursing from Wichita State University, and a JD from Washburn University School of Law.
