Recruiting & Retaining Millennials, Gen Z & Nexters (*$149)

 

The world is facing a possible pandemic. Now is the time to strategically prepare – not panic. Can your organization handle a pandemic? More specifically, COVID-19? This webinar will address people who have and haven’t contracted the virus, including patients, family, staff, caregivers, communities, and facilities, with an emphasis on hospice patients in long-term care.

Start preparing by learning what the novel COVID-19 is and how to:

  • Prevent the spread
  • Assess staff and patients for risk
  • Educate staff, patients, and your community

You’ll learn how to review your agency’s EPP for pandemic preparedness. A tabletop exercise will be provided to help you conduct a gap analysis and identify required updates to maintain CMS compliance. Participants will also receive the latest recommendations to optimize EPP and policies regarding infection control and prevention.

 

Highlights

  • Define what COVID-19 is, how it spreads, and how to prevent the virus and infection
  • Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) for COVID-19
  • Assess your high-risk patient population, staff, and healthcare facilities using tools recommended by leading healthcare organizations
  • Explain your organization’s responsibilities during a pandemic to patients, staff, and the public
  • Immediately prepare for this current public health crisis and strategically assess ongoing actions to handle it

  • WHO simulation tabletop exercise which includes participant and facilitator guidelines and feedback form for agencies who want to conduct a tabletop drill in their communities
  • WHO documents regarding infection control and prevention, PPE, and home care for patients suspected with COVID-19
  • Website links to the latest documents, education, and daily novel COVID-19 updates
  • Interactive quiz
