KHCA/KCAL's Spring Quality Conference is coming up soon!  April 22-23, 2014 in Manhattan.  We have a full line up of amazing speakers that are leaders in the industry. 

Not only do we have great education and a full line up of vendors showing off their new products, we are also attending a K-State Baseball Game, brought to you by Key Rehab!

So come on out for great education, great vendors, and great fun at a baseball game!

This week's featured speaker is David Farrell, Director:

David Farrell holds a master's degree in social work with a concentration in business administration and gerontology from Boston College, a license in nursing home administration and an undergraduate degree from Stonehill College. He is co-author of the award-winning book "Meeting the Leadership Challenge in LTC: What You Do Matters," and has co-authored numerous journal articles on quality improvement and culture change.

Having worked at every level of long-term care, from cutting his teeth as a nurses' aide in his earliest days to turning around struggling inner-city nursing homes as a high-level executive, Farrell knows what it takes to put the visionary principles of a model like Green House into practice. As founder and first chair of the Rhode Island Culture Change Coalition and a board member of the national Pioneer Network, Farrell has traveled the country inspiring long-term care leaders to make meaningful changes to enhance quality.

David will speak to us about "Creating a Patient Safety Chain".  People matter most.  This session will present an approach to leadership that offers proven, practical strategies participants can immediately implement to engage the staff, retain top performers, and achieve high customer satisfaction.

David will also facilitate a breakfast learning circle discussing the journey through culture change.  This will be a poster session.  If your center has a journey to share, please contact Polly Berkley at 785-267-6003
