Re-envisioning Elder Care Conference
The Re-envisioning Elder Care Conference is a gathering of colleagues and professionals interested in approaches to enhance the quality of care and life of older adults in the post-acute and long-term care continuum. The Department of Geriatrics has hosted this conference for the past three years with similar conferences held prior.
At previous conferences, nationally-recognized experts have focused on a range of both clinical and policy related issues such as the evolving role of the nurse practitioner and physician assistants, transitions of care, medical foster homes, and the evolution from a fee-based reimbursement system to one that is value-based. Past topics have also included physician influence on complex decision making and team functioning, effective infection control programs, and antipsychotic medication reduction programs.
This year, we are teaming up with the Nova Southeastern University GWEP to host an in-person and virtual conference on September 9, 2022 from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm (Eastern Time). To learn more, visit the conference website at Third Annual Re-envisioning Elder Care Conference. All participants, whether attending in-person or virtually, must register through Eventbrite.
