Have You Made Your Plans to Attend the Inaugural AHCA/NCAL Quality Summit?

Two great events that go great together… for the first time in 2016, the Quality Symposium and NCAL Spring Conference are being integrated.  For those members who have in the past made a tough choice between which to attend, those days are over.  This change means one seamless member experience focused on the top priority issues driving your work today and into tomorrow.  If you wonder how you can possibly keep up on all you need to know to keep your organization thriving in an era of rapidly changing expectations and payment models focused on value and quality, look no further for educational content and networking with your peers to help position you for success!  Among the highlights this meeting has in store for you are:

LED Talks
Back for a second year, join us for the Provider Magazine curated series of six, 18-minute talks challenging attendees to Lead, Engage and Discover new topics and ideas designed to be evocative, inspirational, and sometimes unsettling.  Come here what LED speakers including Jessica Patterson, Certified Nursing Assistant; Dayne DuVall of the National Certification Board for Alzheimer Care; Phil DuBois of St. Joseph’s College; Cindy Halkola, Activities Director at the Chelsea at Brookfield and others have to share with you about their experiences and insights.

Keynote Speakers
Hear from three distinguished and thought-provoking speakers sure to be a highlight of your conference experience: Don Berwick, MD, MPP of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement; Meagan Johnson, generational expert, and Patrick Conway, MD of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Poster Sessions
See and hear compelling success stories from your peer organizations, sharing their journeys in applying the Baldrige Performance Excellence Criteria and the Quality Assurance Performance Improvement (QAPI) approaches to make their centers and communities better places.  Learn valuable lessons that you can use and apply to your work back at home.

Education Sessions
Over twenty concurrent sessions designed to offer valuable, practical learning to help you tackle the challenges your organization faces today and tomorrow and support your efforts to provide the best care possible for those you serve.

Our intensives round out your conference experience with four sessions featuring powerful and insightful speakers offering a deep-dive into critical topics including:   Enhancing Well-Being for the Person Living with Dementia; Getting Out of the Weeds and Into Action – Your Organization’s Strategy for Success in New Payment Models; Ten Steps to Staff Stability in a Tightening Labor Market; and How to Have the Important Conversations.

And of course, networking, networking and more networking!  One of the things you tell us is always among the best parts of our meetings, we are making sure you have ample opportunity to connect with your long-time colleagues and to meet new people to share with and learn from.  Join us at the AHCA/NCAL Quality Summit – don’t delay,  pre-registration closes on January 12th.  See you in San Antonio!
