Resident Rights - Coming Soon to a State Near You!

Recorded On: 06/26/2023

The characteristics of the residents we serve, and the staff who provide the services, continue to change. The average age of our residents is older than it has ever been, and the complexity of the challenges our residents suffer from has never been greater.  The diversity of our staff also continues to change.  As we consider how we support older and more complex residents, as well as our staff, we must also consider how to best address individuals whose sexual orientation, or gender identity may differ from others in your community. Our webinar will touch on the state of the law in this area, and provide practical tips on how to address questions as they arise within your community related to both staff and residents.  

 Objectives

  • Will provide attendees with an update of relevant state and federal laws, and Court decisions;
  • Will provide guidance on policies and procedures that impact staff;
  • Will provide guidance on policies and procedures that impact residents. 

Attendees will be awarded 1.0 ANCC contact hours for completing the course/webinar. Program Start Date: 06/26/23 Program Review Date: 06/25/26

This program has been submitted for Continuing Education for 1.25 total participant hours from NAB/NCERS.
