PROGRAM INTRODUCTION

CALTCM is dedicated to improving the lives of the providers and patients of the California Post-Acute and Long-Term Care (PA/LTC) community. This year’s Annual Meeting continues this commitment.

Mark your calendars for May 17-19, 2018 and join us at our conference to learn how to strengthen your community through teamwork and collaboration as well as working smarter through clinical and administrative updates.

This year we are making our education more accessible by scheduling Friday as a full day of team-focused, active-learning sessions, intended for your whole IDT. Friday morning we will hear from people like you all over California who were identified as having best practices--great ideas you can implement in your practice. Friday afternoon is an active adult learning session all about making our work environments safer and more enjoyable through collaboration and culture change. Come with your team or build your network and take these practices back home.

Saturday is clinical and management focused - featuring hot topics, deep-dives into managing complex patients, problem-solving Q&A sessions and panel discussions with the experts, as well as updates on the regulatory landscape.

New this year is a special Thursday evening interactive pre-conference focused on emerging medicolegal issues, featuring nursing home elder abuse cases presented by attorneys (defense and plaintiff) who handle litigation – they have seen it all, so you don’t have to. Discover some tips that will improve quality and reduce the risks of regulatory and civil exposure, and learn more about working as an expert consultant and witness on these cases. Come and join us. The California Long-Term Care community is stronger and smarter when we work together.
