Session Description: Join us for this 1-day “hands-on” interactive program!  The presenters will walk participants through the background, current industry landscape and initiatives and how to situate your organization for success!  This program will include an introduction to the INTERACT™ Quality Improvement Program, implementation steps, sustaining the program, incorporation of INTERACT™ into health information technology and leadership strategies for ongoing support and follow up.  Key to the presentation is discussion on experience in implementing INTERACT™ in hundreds of organizations.   Attendees will be able to work through case studies and active involvement in discussion on lessons learned from the industry in order to get frontline staff on board to identify early acute changes of condition, manage in-house when possible and reduce unnecessary re-hospitalizations for quality and financial success.

Session Leaders: Joseph G. Ouslander, M.D., Professor and Senior Associate Dean for Geriatric Programs; Chair, Department of Integrated Medical Sciences; Interim Director, FAU Internal Medicine Residency Program; Charles E.

Intensive 2 – Leadership Skills for Changing Times
(blue dot on your badge)

Session Description: Your systems create your outcomes. Your organization’s performance – and survival - depends on your ability to guide and support the moment-by-moment interactions of your staff closest to your residents. Performance-based payment, prevention of avoidable hospitalizations, individualized dementia care, quality improvement – all require leadership skills and organizational systems to engage your staff. Easier said than done! There are many forces that work against high engagement yet, your staff hunger to contribute. Learn how to tap into their intrinsic motivation to provide good care and contribute to a team effort. When you involve staff, they will perform at the top of their abilities and so will your organization. This session draws from the Long Term Care Leaders’ Academy for Excellence, created by the California Association of Health Facilities and adapted by the Iowa Health Care Association, which has now supported 4 classes of leaders to learn the skills and practices needed to meet the challenges of our changing times. This session is highly interactive and provides practical strategies that participants can immediately put into action.

Session Leaders: Barbara Frank and Cathie Brady, Principals, B&F Consulting
