Advancing Excellence in Long-Term Care Collaborative
2020 AELTCC Summit: Mitigating Racial Inequities in Post-Acute & Long-Term Care
The 2020 Annual Summit of the Advancing Excellence in Long-Term Care Collaborative (AELTCC) will explore the topic: Mitigating Racial Inequities in Post-Acute & Long-Term Care (PALTC). As nursing homes have struggled to adapt to COVID-19 and keep residents safe, the pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated widespread disparities in healthcare outcomes. Amid national cries for racial justice, nursing homes are challenged to understand and address persistent inequalities experienced by patients, staff, and leaders of color. The summit will feature three afternoons of education and action.

Please note: After you register for this first day, you will be invited to join us for the two afternoons following, during which workgroups will develop actions to mitigate racial challenges within nursing home residents, staff, and leadership. Please provide your first- and second-choice workgroup at that time.

Dec 9, 2020 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
