The Artifacts of Culture Change (ACC), originally developed in 2006 by Karen Schoeneman and Carmen Bowman as a CMS funded project, has recently been updated and expanded into the ACC 2.0, reflecting the many culture change and resident-directed practices that are part of turning an institution into a home/community. The ACC 2.0 is integral to the culture change movement and a great way for communities to assess and measure where they are on the culture change journey, celebrate accomplishments, and generate goals and action plans for the journey. There are now two ACC 2.0 tools: one for nursing homes and the other for assisted living communities ACC-AL.
This webinar will provide an overview of the ACC 2.0 for nursing homes and the new ACC-AL for assisted living. Karen and Carmen will explain why and how the 2.0 versions were developed, introduce the subsections with examples, and describe best practices for completing the tool as a team.
Participants will be able to...
• Describe the ACC tools.
• Name the differences between the ACC tools.
• List some of the culture change practices reflected on the new tools.
