GWEP Learning Community

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. To see a full report of what we learned
