Description

This session will focus on the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature of improving the quality of care and life for PA/LTC residents. It will feature presentations by the Foundation's 2017 Quality Improvement Award winner on the "Quality of Dementia End-of-Life (EOL) Care in Nursing Homes using Quality Data Collection Tool for Palliative Care (QDACT-PC) Registry," as well as presentation from the winners of the 2018 QI & Health Outcome (QIHO) Award. These awards are centered on programs that facilities have successfully implemented to improve the quality of life for their residents.
