HHSC and DSHS are hosting a free virtual conference on quality in long-term care Aug. 30–31.
“Navigating the New Normal in Texas Long-Term Care” will address approaches to caring for people with dementia, pandemic lessons learned, the scope of nursing practice, infection prevention and control, staff emotional well-being and other topics.
“The impacts of the public health emergency for the people we serve, their families and long-term care providers have been tremendous over the past year and a half,” said Amber Campbell, Quality Monitoring Program director. “Managing these impacts, while still providing high-quality person-centered care, has been everyone’s priority.
“I believe we have identified creative ways to implement culture change and provide person-centered care, particularly when caring for diverse populations. I invite everyone to join us for our conference as we tackle these and other topics.”
Continuing education credit for multiple disciplines will be provided for this conference.
The conference presentations will be available on the HHS Learning Portal from Aug. 30–Dec. 31. Registration is not required.
