When it comes to compliance, one misstep can have a lasting effect on an organization’s reputation. The UF Health Compliance Services team is committed to providing faculty and staff the education and resources necessary to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Their efforts also support the integrity of UF Health as a world-class organization. Each November, national compliance and ethics activities raise awareness and organizations like UF Health get on board to help staff understand guidelines.
TAKE THE COMPLIANCE AWARENESS SURVEY The Compliance Awareness Survey is available throughout November. At the beginning of this month, you received a direct link to the survey via email, and you can also find it on the Bridge home page in FYI: Announcements —Compliance Services. It only takes a few minutes to complete the confidential survey, but it’s instrumental in our compliance efforts. Your feedback helps us identify what we’re doing well plus opportunities for improvement. Promoting an environment of compliance isn’t the responsibility of one department, it takes a system wide effort. Respond today and help us become a stronger organization.
VISIT COMPLIANCE ON THE BRIDGE Visit the newly redesigned Compliance Services Bridge site for more information about activities planned for November.
