Back by popular demand, AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine will offer the Infection Prevention in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Certificate Course at the 2019 annual conference. Developed in partnership with the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the course will address aspects of infection control and prevention that are unique to skilled nursing facilities, which must balance a home-like environment while minimizing the risk of infections. The course will review occupational health concerns in the PALTC setting, including outbreaks that affect both staff and residents, opportunities to improve antimicrobial use, and strategies to reduce the transmission of infections such as multi-drug resistant organisms and Clostridium difficile.

Participants who attend this course will earn 10 CME credits and a certificate in Infection Prevention in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care. Certificates will be sent electrically to participants within three weeks of course completion. This is a two-day course that runs Thursday from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Friday from 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM.

Understanding Nursing Home Organizational Behavior for Effective Leadership as a Medical Director

Mar 7, 2019 8:00am ‐ Mar 7, 2019 11:30am

Credits: None available.

In 1905, Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” A true leader understands his team and his processes and isn’t afraid of “out-of-the-box thinking.” Understanding organizational behavior helps medical directors understand their own core beliefs and values, and use their political and social capital to transform an ordinary organization into a highly efficient and successful one. During these 3.5 hours we will use interactive, lecture, small group case-based problem solving, and role-play methods to help attendees improve their management and leadership skills.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe organizational behavior and why it's important for effective medical directorship.
  • Explain how individual values, attitudes, and emotions effect leadership performance.
  • Discuss groups and teams and how working with others can increase everybody’s performance.
  • Describe organizational culture, socialization, and mentoring and how to use these concepts for a competitive edge.

Assisted Living: The Reality of Aging in Place

Mar 7, 2019 8:00am ‐ Mar 7, 2019 11:30am

Identification: TH7

Credits: None available.

The session will present quality improvement tools identified through a detailed effort conducted by the University of North Carolina and funded by the Center for Excellence in Assisted Living. The discussion will address how providers can help assisted living (AL) leadership determine the targets for quality improvement and also will present the person-centered care paradigm noting that a person's goals of care must be the focus of that care. Successful outcomes of care include advance care planning that is person-centered and use of evidence-based research to implement processes that detect early change in condition. Three different models of care, including the chronic care model, will be addressed.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe three different models of care that can be used in the assisted living settings.
  • Describe the key elements of person centered care planning to ensure successful outcomes of care and resident satisfaction.
  • Identify quality improvement tools and discuss how providers can help assisted living leadership determine the targets for quality improvement.
  • Identify the knowledge gap by LPNs/LVNs in managing chronic medical conditions to prevent acute exacerbation of symptoms and transfer to a higher level of care.
