Upcoming Michigan Events Feature PHI Staff

September 3, 2014

The upcoming Michigan Joint Provider Survey Training will be focused on culture change and will include several presentations by PHI staff.

The day-long training, which has the subtitle “Culture Change: Person-Centered Care in a Regulatory Environment,” will take place September 23 at the Hyatt Place in Novi.

In the morning, PHI Organizational Change Consultant Anna Ortigara will join Mattie Warren of Michigan’s Long Term Care Division and Cheryl Van Bemden of Porter Hills Retirement Communities for a session entitled “Culture Change: One Vision.”

Breakout sessions will be held in the afternoon. PHI Organizational Change Consultant Cean Eppelheimer and PHI Midwest Policy Director Hollis Turnham will each co-facilitate two sessions.

PHI has helped Michigan address the idea of person-centered care in a regulatory environment with its One Vision: Moving Forward initiative, which helps state nursing homes adhere to the values of person-centered care while remaining compliant with state and federal nursing home regulations.

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs conducts Joint Provider Survey Trainings for nursing home staff and state health care surveyors every spring and fall.

For additional information, consult the training brochure (pdf, 2.5 MB).

Later, in October, Eppelheimer will be appear at an event of the National Association Directors of Nursing Administration in Long Term Care in Battle Creek, Michigan.

The three-day convocation will be held October 22-24. More information is available online.
