SPECIAL FREE WEBINAR ANNOUNCEMENT
Empowering Nursing Staff and the Patient Through Understanding Federal Civil Rights Laws Prohibiting Discrimination on the Basis of Disability
The Academy of Forensic Nursing is excited to welcome special guest Marc Dubin, Esq. for this upcoming FREE AFN Webinar on December 7, 2022 at 12:00 PM EST.  

To properly provide services to patients with disabilities, and to keep family members informed, it is essential that health care providers and health care administrators understand the rights of persons with disabilities and the responsibilities of the providers. Since 1973, the federal government has enforced civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. In this webinar, we will discuss those laws, present scenarios to consider, and share information and resources that will help you understand the application of the ADA and Section 504 to the health care setting.

This webinar is geared toward nurses, health care professionals, and health care administrators.

  • Empower nurses to enhance services to patients with disabilities.
  • Empower patients and their families to receive health care services without experiencing discrimination on the basis or disability.
