5. Training needs

Have you wondered how to practically apply MedBiquitous standards in your organization? Does your staff need training on XML and other technologies for collaboration? Tell us about it! MedBiquitous has developed a questionnaire to assess the training needs of the MedBiquitous community. We will use the data from this survey to shape webinars, workshops, and other educational offerings.

6. Membership update
