Tuesday, September 1st (Session A4) - With the Right People: How a Statewide Collaborative Created Change

Session A4

Adapting is inevitable and under enough pressure, change happens. The Maine Partnership to Improve Dementia Care is such an example of change drivers. Beginning in early fall of 2018, caregivers from across the state set out to prepare a change package that would assist Maine nursing homes with resources to better care for resident’s living with dementia, reduce the use of off label anti-psychotic medications and improve the overall care in our communities. This highly adaptive and inherently creative group set out to develop tools but created a much more dynamic and sustainable product in the end. When the right people are brought together in constructive ways, they can create powerful visions and robust strategies. This session will focus on how this Maine partnership developed a change package that was evidence-based and critical to the improvement of our nursing home communities. 

1. Define best practices and outline core competencies for Quality Dementia Care.
2. List and review the specific Change Package modules.
3. Identify actionable items and next steps for implementation.
