LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Each year, the Program Committee works to formulate a program that provides cutting-edge, evidence-based, unbiased education relevant to the spectrum of professionals in the LTC setting. 

The following are global objectives that reflect the purpose of the overall program in terms of the knowledge, competencies and/or skills attendees may gain by participating in the activity. Note that due to varying needs, not all objectives will be relevant to each attendee.

Upon conclusion of participating in this educational activity, attendees should be able to:

  • Apply knowledge and skills gained to enhance the effectiveness of medical direction in nursing facilities,
  • Discuss clinical advances and new research findings relevant to long term care medicine,
  • Implement clinical practice guidelines in the long term care setting,
  • Utilize available data, tools, and emerging technologies to inform decisions about clinical care and/or medical direction,
  • Implement strategies for effective communication with patients, families and care teams,
  • Enhance skills and abilities to collaborate with and/or lead the long term care interdisciplinary team,
  • Analyze available data to promote quality improvement in long term care,
  • Gain new perspectives on relevant aspects of fiscal issues, health care policy, and AMDA policy priorities,
  • Establish a network with active members of AMDA and the long term care medical community.
