NRS/NYRS 4th Quarter Preparations

Date/Time: Thursday, May 09, 2019  9:00AM – 12:00PM
Location: Farmingdale, NY
Instructor(s): Rosemary Matt, Kimberly Malcolm

We have entered the 4th quarter of FY2018/2019 so it is that time of year again when programs need to be vigilant about their data and year end planning. What’s important, which data must have your attention, what time constraints do we have, and how do we manage all the necessary data elements in ASISTS? Rosemary Matt will review all these aspects and focus very much on Follow Up Outcomes and the reports in ASISTS designed to help with this important work. Just a reminder that Follow Up Outcomes will be included in performance measures this year. Program managers, data managers, and other key program staff would be best to attend. Both NRS and NYRS funded programs should attend. Room assignment TBA. PD hours - 3
