Spotlight on Quality-Focus on Residents
I hope to see each of you at NCCNHR's 29th Annual Meeting and Conference this fall! Once again we will join together to share strategies, ideas, plans and gain knowledge so that we can more effectively bring about improvements in long-term care in our communities, states and nation.
Everywhere we turn, there is discussion of quality by many organizations, professionals and providers. This conference has been designed so that we can utilize NCCNHR's long held strategy of asking residents to define quality - looking at quality from a resident perspective. We will be bringing in experts - researchers, advocates, practitioners, and most importantly residents and their families - to discuss quality and to inspire us to return home and continue our work for change that is resident focused, on-going and that truly results in improved quality of life.
Let me point out some conference changes. We are returning to our schedule of earlier years by starting the conference on Sunday evening (October 17th) and holding intensives Sunday afternoon. This gives our many different interest groups - citizen advocates, local ombudsmen, state ombudsmen, and others - the opportunity to hold meetings on Saturday and Sunday morning. We will close Wednesday at noon; however, we encourage you to add on the Wednesday afternoon sessions being offered by NALC for Bridge Day.
You can plan on continuing to enjoy:
I look forward to meeting so many of you that I only know by telephone or by name, and to seeing you all sharing and strategizing together. Please call Christopher Havins at our office for conference details and feel free to send me your ideas. A full conference flyer will be mailed in mid-August. In the meantime, check our website regularly for updated conference details.
