PBI Professional Boundaries and Risk Management: A Primer US Edition (Primer-20) is organized by Professional Boundaries Education.
20 CME/CE hours

Included are a reading packet and other readings with knowledge checks, written assignments, two telephonic reviews of learning accomplishments and their Personalized Protection Plan with a PBI faculty member, and four sessions of the Maintenance and Accountability Seminar.
