2-Day TapRooT® Incident Investigation & Root Cause Analysis
Learn the basics of the TapRooT® System for finding the root causes of incidents, accidents, quality problems, near-misses, operational errors, hospital sentinel events, and other types of problems.

Learn to find and fix problems proactively before an incident occurs with TapRooT®.
