Our 2018 GWEP Retreat was full of meaningful information shared by members of the GWEP team and our partners. We heard from our 2016/17 faculty fellow; Alisyn May, PharmD, BCACP, CDE; on deprescribing and the importance of it moving forward in long-term care. Next, we listened to exciting updates on our programs: the learning communities, medical director certification, ADRD community education and the nurse residency program. Our long-term care partners from Mission Health Services and Avalon Healthcare then spoke about the opportunities and challenges in long-term care. Breakout sessions were later used to discuss hiring and retention of CNAs, primary care to long-term care, what is and is not working in our current programs and other opportunities for our grant to explore. To finish up our 2018 retreat, we listened to updates from our different strands and fellows. To top it all off, we got the chance to see what quality improvement projects our nurse residents had been working on and they were absolutely incredible! The 2018 GWEP Retreat was a successful gathering for our grant and we gained such great insights from everyone involved.
