The Medi-Sota Education program offers a variety of workshops pertaining to healthcare including Acute Care, Long Term Care, Management, Business Office, Compliance, and other Ancillary Departments.  Most workshops are available at no cost or a reduced rate to members.  A library of training videos is also available to Members Only at no charge. 

Because Medi-Sota covers a wide region of MN, we also offer several workshops by videoconferencing so members do not have to travel long distances and can remain on site for their training.  Visit the Medi-Sota Education page to review a list of upcoming workshops.

Mentor Health

The Lac qui Parle Health Network (LqPHN) was awarded a U.S. Department of Health and Human Services grant to fund the MENTOR Health IT project. This project connects network members with the broader health consortium, Medi-Sota, to propagate best practices and effective models for implementing and optimizing health information technology solutions to meet the needs of the rural, sparsely populated and rapidly aging southwest region of MN.

Easy access to cocaine, heroin, meth and other street drugs, such as Ice, Oxycontin, Ecstasy, Ketamine, DXM, “bath salts”, K2, GH B, and other synthetics for a variety of reasons, are becoming an epidemic in the United States. Many people are unaware of their use because they can be sold under traditional trade names that disguise their origin. Emergency and trauma staff as well as hospital staff are seeing more and more patients that have been using these drugs. This workshop will help you in treating these patients.
Upon conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:
**Discuss the origin of designer drugs and identify examples of designer drugs.
**Describe the effects, complications, and medical management of opiate agents.
**Identify new drug trends and complications with use.
**Describe the effects, complications and medical management of phenethylamine related drug use.
