Virginia Culture Change Coalition

Trained 240 nursing home administrators and staff leaders at four locations across the state in the   second phase of 'Foundations of Culture Change' training series, and equipped them with an understanding of culture change that goes beyond the surface elements. Administrators learned practical steps for putting into place the principles and practices that   promote individualized care to improve both quality of life and clinical outcomes for nursing home residents.  They acquired skills for bringing the entire staff on board with the move toward culture change, while acquiring valuable CEU's. Nursing home leaders shared with their peers their own strategies and experiences in implementing culture change and individualized care. Contact Information
