The Next Chapter: Healing a Traumatized Industry #W2122
Wednesday, October 6, 2021 (10:00 AM - 11:00 AM) (CDT)
Long-term care leaders are traumatized, fatigued, disillusioned and, in some cases, hopeless to recover from the COVID-19 Pandemic. With many seasoned leaders opting out of the next chapter of long-term care, valuable experiential knowledge and support is out of reach for a new generation of leaders.
As we move forward in a post-pandemic world, appealing to new populations of staff and restoring consumer confidence will require a rethinking of what is person-centered, homelike, and rich in the potential for growth and recovery.
This program will inspire a renewed energy and willingness to move ahead in those contemplating jumping ship. Moreover, this conversation will motivate a new leadership perspective, moving all leaders to be creative and tenacious in meeting the challenges of the emerging culture of long-term care.
OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:
- Describe the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the culture of long-term care relative to behavioral health, quality care, and quality of life;
- Explain the path long-term leaders need to take to achieve an environment of healing and recovery for those giving and receiving care; and
- Achieve and sustain an environment of care that fosters a satisfying, holistic, person- centered approach to healing and recovery.
