In this interactive session, MBS Coordinators will have the opportunity to learn from one another and network with their peers. We go over the basics of the MBS Coordinator role and how to set your program up for success; the virtual site visit process and best practices for preparing for one; discuss strategies for getting your patients through your program to surgery efficiently; increasing engagement in support groups; and partnering with other services to treat the whole patient.
