To get the most out of this collaborative opportunity, come prepared to share successful strategies you have implemented and/or barriers you are encountering in your work to reduce the use of these medications.

Lake Superior QIN invites you to the second webinar of Learning Session 5: The demographics of long-term care populations are changing: increasingly more younger adults are in need of long-term care. This webinar will cover strategies to identify and address the mental health complexities in this younger long-term care population in order to improve their overall quality of life.
The National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative invites you to the first webinar of Learning Session 5. Dementia care is the topic of this webinar, with special emphasis on reducing unnecessary antipsychotic medications and how QAPI can help homes achieve this reduction.
Nearly 950 nursing homes in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are participating in the National Nursing Home Quality Care Collaborative (NNHQCC). They are changing the way they approach quality to improve the care and life of nursing home residents. In this webinar, we will review outcomes of nursing homes in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin participating in this collaborative and hear about events that are being planned to support these homes in their Quality Assurance Quality Improvement (QAPI) efforts. In addition, nursing home teams who have had great success in improving their quality measures will share successful strategies.
