The Eden Alternative® Follow-up Webinar: Optimizing Medication Systems & Usage in Arkansas, 4/21 @1p - Posted:Thursday, April 7, 2016

Did your organization participate in the Eden Alternative grant project, “Optimizing Medication Systems and Usage in Arkansas Nursing Homes” last Fall?  If so…

As a participant in this grant project, your last step is to come together with other participants to share best practices on April 21, 2016. This time, though, we’ll come together via a 90-minute webinar at 1pm CT. It is expected that a representative(s) from every participating team registers for this free online event.  Only 3 teams have registered so far. Please register here.

At least ten organizations are asked to share their successes.  We will lock in the first ten organizations we hear from. Please email Laura Beck at lbeck@edenalt.org if you wish your organization to share what steps you’ve taken to successfully reduce unnecessary medications and optimize medication systems since the 1-day workshop.

This is a chance to show other nursing homes, ombudsmen, and state surveyors that medication use can be successfully reduced (especially antipsychotics) and that life gets better for both the Elders and their care partners. We want to help you shine!

To do this:

  1. You need to register TODAY to attend the webinar! 
  2. Volunteer to speak during the webinar; 5 to 10 minutes tops. This is a chance to share what steps you’ve taken based on what you learned at the one-day workshop with us, both the successes and the challenges. This is your opportunity to be the inspiration that improves the lives of Elders all across your state!
