Learning Communities

The Learning Community involves live video-conferencing presentation sessions that provide healthcare workers with increased training for working with older adults. Our participants are DONs, nurses, doctors, and other team members in long-term care facilities. Presenters to the learning community have expertise in particular topics in post-acute or long-term care. To see when the next Learning Community session is, check our events calendar.
