Regional Learning Collaboratives
Check back for 2013 session information
The adoption of culture change practices is both exciting and challenging. It is natural for staff to want to fall back on the tried and true and to have concerns about change. The learning collaboratives are designed to provide your team with the coaching and mentoring you need in order to adopt successful strategies of transformational change.
The regional learning collaboratives provide the opportunity for a team from your nursing home to learn theory and then apply those theories in practice over time. The teams meet for a year – with quarterly learning sessions and monthly support meetings held between the quarterly learning sessions.
In 2010 the four quarterly learning sessions featured a presentation by an expert faculty member. Continuing education credits are earned through participation in the sessions.
- Learning Session #1: The Process of Change
- Learning Session #2: Person-Centered Care Practices
- Learning Session #3: Putting the Home in Nursing Homes
- Learning Session #4: Creating Community
- Monthly Support Meetings
The purpose of the support meetings is to follow up on action plans, coach and advise on implementation, and to talk about what is working and what is not working. These three-hour sessions will meet in locations that are central to participating facilities.
