CALTCM Annual Meeting

April 29 & 30, 2016

The 42nd Annual CALTCM meeting entitled Quality Through Best Practices is focused on person-centered care in the long-term care setting. Attendees will be challenged to find ways to integrate the latest knowledge into long-term care and post-acute care practices, recognizing models that reduce hospital readmissions. We have designed our meeting for practical training of all members of the interdisciplinary team, in areas where long-term care is presently focused to improve quality.
