Pioneer Network is pleased to announce the release of our Engaging Staff in Individualizing Care 12 Webinar DVD Set

The webinars were part of a core curriculum used by 49 nursing homes in 9 states during a Pioneer Network project funded by The Retirement Research Foundation. These homes incubated the following four organizational practices to achieve improvements in their clinical, human resource, and business outcomes:
  • Consistent or dedicated assignment
  • Shift huddles
  • Involving CNAs in care planning
  • QI closest to the resident
The organizational practices provide the infrastructure for staff communication and problem-solving that can be applied to any area of quality and performance improvement. LEARN MORE

During this webinar, you will learn how Empira nursing homes have reviewed their care practices and have made a good night's sleep possible.  LEARN MORE
