| Falls Management & Prevention Week
We are trying something NEW at AHCA!! The AHCA Clinical Practice Subcommittee on Falls has created a free, week-long webinar and live discussion event centered on Falls Management & Prevention. The series provides great ideas and useful strategies that connect falls reduction and management with sleep, medication, environmental issues, QAPI, workplace practices, regulatory issues, family engagement and leadership practices. This is a combination of On Demand Webinars and Live Daily Discussions. Here is how it works:
|Registration Opens September 12th at 3:30pm ET! – Login to the ON DEMAND section of this page, to register for and listen to eight, 1 hour, pre-recorded sessions hosted by subject matter experts. The recorded sessions build upon each other and provide opportunity for centers to view the sessions over and over and share them with staff on different units and shifts. To get the most benefit from this event is to listen to the webinars as listed in the schedule below.

Health Care Reform and Webinars
As you can imagine, something as sweeping as Health Care Reform cannot be dealt with in a single webinar.

Our staff is working diligently to fully understand the bill and its provisions and will seek to provide the best presenters on each Health Care Reform topic.
