"Pioneering Approaches to Long Term Care: Strengthening the Workforce in the 21st Century" Workshops Offered

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Illinois Department on Aging Director Margo E. Schreiber invites nursing home administrators, social workers, registered nurses and other interested professionals to attend a November workshop focusing on the national movement to reform nursing home care.

"The previous workshops we have held on the "Pioneer" movement within the world of long term care have been immensely popular," Schreiber said. "The Department is proud it can again bring in renowned speakers and facilitate discussions about how long term care facilities can meet new challenges."

Titled "Pioneering Approaches to Long Term Care: Strengthening the Workforce in the 21st Century," the workshop will feature talks by Cathy Brady, M.A. from Massachusetts, and Ann Wyatt, M.S.W. from New York.

Both Brady and Wyatt are members of a new movement that is transforming the culture of how residents and staff live and work together, an approach that is gaining momentum with providers, physicians and other health care professionals across the nation.

The workshop will be repeated in four locations: November 27, 2001, at the Gateway Center in Collinsville; November 28, 2001, at the Holiday Inn in Decatur; November 29, 2001, at the Best Western Brandywine Lodge in Dixon, and November 30, 2001, at the Civic Center in Evanston. Registration begins at 8 a.m., and each workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $20, and credit hours are offered for licensed social workers and nursing home administrators.

The workshop is sponsored by the Illinois Department on Aging Long Term Care Ombudsman Program. For more information about the workshop, call Neyna Johnson at 217/785-3140 at the Illinois Department on Aging.
