Date: Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Time: 3:00 - 4:30 PM ET

Registration required: Register here.

 


Audience:

This event is open to beneficiaries, families, healthcare providers, practitioners, partners, and Quality Innovation Network-Quality Improvement Organizations.

Event Description:

Are you a clinician, quality improvement professional, patient, caregiver, or community partner? Regardless of where your life journey takes you, you or a loved one may someday need care, also called long-term services and supports (LTSS) to assist in daily living. When that time comes, you deserve to be treated with warmth, dignity, and respect and to be content, healthy, and safe no matter where you live or what your background is. Unfortunately, while nursing homes, other facilities offering LTSS, and home health services have improved over time in some aspects, disparities in the quality of care persist based on race, ethnicity, income, and even the zip code where you live. On this call, we’ll explore how Quality Improvement Organizations, clinicians, patients and residents, families, loved ones, and community partners are helping to address disparities by supporting culturally and structurally competent services in nursing homes, other facilities offering LTSS, and home and community-based services. Join us to hear from others and share your experiences!

Stay tuned for a flyer for this event.
