A Shared Vision: Surveyor/Provider Perspectives on the Culture Change Journey

JAN 28, 2009 at 1:00-4:30pm

Our first program of 2009 will give you the opportunity to learn from and dialogue with surveyors and providers who have partnered to help change the culture of aging services in Oregon to one that embraces quality of life as much as quality of care.

Welcome to a new year of transforming long-term care and the culture of aging in Oregon!

These surveyors and providers are participants in Seniors & People with Disabilities’ CCMU Culture Change Initiative.  Under the initiative, teams of staff (including direct care workers) from 12 nursing homes across Oregon have partnered with a CCMU surveyor to work on culture change efforts within their organizations.  Together the providers and surveyors are learning about the joys and challenges of transforming long-term care cultures, practices and traditions.

During this program, you’ll hear from providers about how they have worked with their staff to embrace culture change, and about which of their culture change efforts have worked — and which haven’t. And you’ll hear from surveyors about how their participation in this effort has influenced their perspectives on culture change as well as their approach to their jobs.

You will have the opportunity to share your own success stories and challenges as well. Don’t miss this opportunity to continue your culture change journey!
