Michigan Project Aims to Strengthen Person-Centered Care

November 28, 2012

Michigan has strengthened its commitment to culture change in nursing homes through its One Vision: Moving Forward project, writes PHI Organizational Change Consultant Cean Eppelheimer in a blog post for Long-Term Living.

The project will promote a “deeper awareness of what person-centered care really means and how to focus on how to make that vision a reality,” Eppelheimer writes.

Eppelheimer and PHI Midwest Director Hollis Turnham are co-facilitators of the project.

One Vision draws upon the viewpoints of a multitude of long-term care stakeholders, including resident advocates, provider associations, government agencies, and employee organizations.

The project helps long-term care facilities overcome the obstacles that prevent them from fully incorporating person-centered care.

One Vision is funded by the Michigan Department of Community Health through money collected from civil monetary penalty funds.
