Karen Schoeneman, Karen Schoeneman Consulting: Quality of Life and Culture Change
Carmen Bowman, Regulator turned Educator, Edu-Catering: Catering Education for Compliance and Culture Change
Have you ever asked yourself the question, “how can I measure the work I am doing related to culture change? If you have, then we’re here to help you answer that question.
This webinar will provide an overview of the ACC 2.0 for nursing homes and the new ACC-AL for assisted living. Karen and Carmen will explain why and how the 2.0 versions were developed, introduce the subsections with examples, and describe best practices for completing the tool as a team.
And there’s more. Pioneer Network will soon be hosting web-based versions of both tools for download and/or online completion, along with videos to assist in completion of the tools. New web pages will soon be available with helpful resources to support teams in learning how to implement the practices reflected in the tool.
