Community Peer Group Kentucky Hardin Memorial Hospital Hardin Memorial Hospital, 913 N. Dixie Ave; Elizabethtown, Kentucky 42701 United States

Partner with your peers to create solutions and grow together. Learn from each other’s successes and experiences. There is value in networking and value in identifying local experts.



WHAT IS A COMMUNITY PEER GROUP?
 
A CPG is exactly that – a group of individuals, working toward the same goals, comprising a community that joins together to solve issues and create best practices.

HOW ARE COMMUNITY PEER GROUPS DIFFERENT FROM REGULAR PEER GROUPS?
The Community Peer Groups are not module-focused. They can be multi-topic, or focus on one topic, rather than a module. Also, Community Peer Groups are structured geographically so that members can easily meet and connect with each other regularly.


WHO CAN ATTEND A COMMUNITY PEER GROUP MEETING?
Attendance is limited to Facility Members and sponsoring Commercial Members. 

A MUSE Community Peer Group enables you to:
 
  • Connect regularly with your local MUSE peers to learn from each other, share your experiences and improve your facilities.
  • Engage more effectively with your neighboring MUSE members.
  • Identify local topic and subject matter experts.
  • Discuss pertinent topics in a more specific and detailed atmosphere – through teleconferences, webinars, face-to-face meetings and publications.
  • Leverage MUSE resources to organize, plan and stage your meetings.

HOW DOES MUSE SUPPORT A CPG?

MUSE can be involved a lot, or a little - depending on your needs. MUSE offers full marketing and advertising support, from creating and sending announcements and promotions, to maintaining the registration lists. MUSE secures sponsoring vendors, and manages those details, as well as all logistical coordination. Catering needs, event materials and signage are also handled by MUSE.

MEETING CONTENT

Occasionally, there is a request or need for speaker recruitment. MUSE can provide a call for participation, and conduct a recruitment campaign if a particular topic is determined to be of importance to the group.
