Long-Term Care Educational Opportunity

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission and the University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing are pleased to announce a collaborative effort to improve long-term care in Texas. 

This partnership includes updating eight web-based courses delivering best practices education to providers of long-term care in Texas nursing homes. 

The first two courses in the series modules are available: 

  • Infection Prevention and Control.
  • Reducing Antipsychotic Use in Long-term Care Facilities. 

Each course will provide education and resources for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, direct care staff, residents and their family members. Continuing education credit is available for registered nurses, certified nurse aides and licensed nursing facility administrators.

The information provided will help guide the decision-making process and improve care, using evidence-based best practices. Registration is free.
