The theme of this year’s Spring Conference is Innovation. The dictionary defines innovation as the act something new or different being introduced. In the world of long-term care, you and the members of your team engage in innovation every day just to stay on top the regulatory, operational, legal and other challenges that your community faces. With the workforce staffing shortage, changes in reimbursement from managed care to bundled payments, the redesign of the Wisconsin’s Family Care program, and so many other issues, Wisconsin’s long-term care provider community needs to remain in a constant state of innovation to meet its constantly growing list of challenges. Yet with challenge, there’s opportunity. Innovation is the vehicle through which we maximize our opportunities and conquer our challenges.
Your WHCA/WiCAL Education Committee welcome you to enjoy enriching professional development seminars, fun and exciting entertainment and valuable networking opportunities that celebrate your commitment to Innovation. The diverse array of educational offerings at this year’s Spring Conference will offer the tools and knowledge you need to continue providing the best quality care to those who need it through the hard-work, innovation of long-term care providers.
