Next week ChangingAging will be broadcasting two days of the Pioneer Network’s 2014 National Conference via livestream video August 5-6 from Kansas City, MO, thanks to underwriting by Kimberly-Clark Corporation.
The livestream feed will be available free to the public at www.PioneerNetwork.net. The Pioneer Network Annual Conference is the premier event of the year showcasing the latest developments in the long-term care culture change movement.
Here’s a sample of livestream sessions we will be featuring:
- Dementia Beyond Disease: Enhancing Well-Being featuring Dr. Al Power: This session will present a radically different approach to understanding and responding to distress in people who live with dementia.
- Inspired Leaders, Inspired Teams, Inspired Results featuring Barbara Bates: Care Plans currently are in the top ten deficiencies found during the annual survey process. Care Plans need to capture our elders’ voices, use their strengths and needs to develop the plan and be implemented by high performing interdisciplinary teams that are focused on hearing our elders, all the while balancing regulations.
- Person-Centered Leadership: Elevating the Art featuring Nancy Fox: Elevating the “Art” of person-centered leadership includes understanding the “Science” that drives all human behavior, including our own.
Anyone involved in this effort knows that creating and sustaining momentum for culture transformation is an enormous undertaking. Conferences like the Pioneer Network’s are critical to propelling the culture change movement forward and we’re excited to extend the reach of the conference to a broader audience via livestream video.
