Formulary Management – Dispelling the Myth

November 9 @ 2pm Eastern

If you’ve ever had to jump through hoops to get a prescription covered by your health insurance, you have some firsthand knowledge of drug formularies. Insurers don’t pay for prescriptions through coded billing the way they pay for doctor visits, exams, or hospital services. Learn about formulary management and its potential impact on the correctional health care environment.

Presenter: Stephen Ford, BS, PharmD, Clinical Pharmacist, Diamond Pharmacy Services, Indiana, PA


VUCA and the Centurion Principle of MAGNUS Officers

December 14 @ 2pm Eastern

Law enforcement officers operate in a world of increasing Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA). MAGNUS Officers (Javidi, et al) counter the effects of VUCA through the purposeful integration and encapsulation of key virtues in their lives. Practically every ethical failure or instance of police misconduct can be traced back to a violation of the Centurion Principle, operating “out from under authority” and pursuing ego-centric gratifications. Conversely, MAGNUS officers faithfully represent their authorities without letting their egos get in the way.

This webinar explores the consequences of officers “giving away” lawful authority by resorting to ego-power. Then presents practical steps to professionally exercise their authority to build trust, generate voluntary compliance with the law, and prevent ethical failures.

Presenter: Sheriff Ray Nash (Ret.), Vice-President, Training and Development, International Academy of Public Safety and Director, Sheriff's Institute for Credible Leadership Development, Summerville, SC
