Knowledge  checks are peppered throughout to increase content retention and a case vignette concludes this training to increase supervisor comfort and confidence applying what they have learned.

Learning Objectives:

2)   Identify signs of impairment for on-site and remote employees.

Describe (and demonstrate) an effective, non-confrontational conversation with an employee suspected of impairment.
