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.
