About this event

The Writing Narrative Descriptions for Reports webinar will provide best practices for writing thorough and meaningful narratives when submitting an NPDB report.* The webinar will also examine details of a strong subject statement, where a report subject can give a perspective on the report.

At the completion of the webinar, attendees will:

  • understand what narrative descriptions are and what they should include and exclude
  • gain tips to help draft narrative descriptions
  • have a better understanding of how to interpret narrative descriptions
  • know how to frame a response to a report's narrative description

This webinar is meant to be interactive, with numerous examples. It will include a Q&A session with NPDB staff members. For more details, visit our Events page.

*For each report submitted to the NPDB, entities are required to provide a narrative description, which is a summary of the official findings or the facts of the case and a description of the circumstances that led to the action taken. The description must include sufficient detail to ensure that future queriers have a clear understanding of what the subject of the report is alleged to have done and the nature of and reasons for the event upon which the report is based.
