Listener questions: AKI, MI, encephalopathy, provider engagement, and more!

Today’s guest is Sharme Brodie, RN, CCDS, CCDS-O, CDI education specialist for HCPro/ACDIS. Today’s show is hosted by ACDIS Associate Editorial Director Linnea Archibald, Director of Programming Rebecca Hendren, Editor and Product Coordinator Karla Kozak, and Associate Editor Jess Fluegel. The show provides a glimpse behind the scenes of all things ACDIS in a more casual, conversational format than our other podcast series.
