February Webinar - Reopening Dining: Are We There Yet?

Events; COVID-19

On Thursday, February 11 at 2pm Eastern, AHCA/NCAL will hold a webinar around dining services in long term care. The CMS QSO memo in September discussed guidelines for reopening communities to visitors and communal dining services. As the vaccine is distributed to long term care, residents and staff have long been ready to get back to normal. With the pandemic still in our midst, this session will discuss best practices for dining services, including lessons learned from COVID-19. Speakers include Anna de Jesus, MBA, RDN, President Nutrition Alliance, LLC and Candace S. Johnson, RDN, FAND, Fellow in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and President, CS Johnson and Associates, Inc. 

Webinar learning objectives include:

  • Discuss current CMS guidance on communal dining
  • Identify conditions and steps to gradually open dining services
  • Discuss best practices used in various dining settings

This webinar is open to AHCA/NCAL members. Members will need to login with their AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords to register for the webinar here. If you need assistance, e-mail educate@ahca.org.
