July 30 Webinar: How to Use Culture Change To Reduce Hospitalization Using Person-Centered Care

On July 30th at 2:00 pm EDT, the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) is hosting a 60-minute webinar titled, Culture Change to Reduce Hospitalization Using Person-Centered Care led by Loretta Kaes, RN, Director of Quality Improvement and Clinical Services, Health Care Association of New Jersey.

Hospitalizations can pose health risks to assisted living residents that impact their quality of life and result in earlier mortality, immobility, or cognitive decline. Providers must think about addressing both acute and chronic care for their residents while remaining a social model.

The presentation will explore how to avoid sending residents to the hospital for certain conditions that might be addressed in the assisted living setting. The learning objectives are:

  1. Understanding the importance of safely reducing hospital readmissions.
  2. Learning about how the tools from the INTERACTâ„¢ program, POLST, and others can be used in continuing education.
  3. Examining attitudes and individual beliefs about caring for the elderly and the impact these have on culture change.

To participate, register here. This webinar will be recorded and available for replay a few days after the presentation.
