    Policy Update: The Shifting Landscape of Nursing Home Care

    Nursing homes continue to navigate a continually shifting landscape as they redefine what it means to offer person-centered quality care and address myriad regulatory and operating challenges. These challenges include keeping up with changing regulations and ongoing updates to infection control protocols; navigating the Minimum Data Set, Nursing Home Care Compare, and the quality reporting program; and establishing a secure foothold in the world of value-based payments. Key staff from the Biden Administration will offer their insights into the government’s response to all these challenges. Congressional staff have been invited to discuss regulations, guidance, and legislative activity focused on staffing, emergency preparedness, behavioral health, and surveys. You’ll want to hear their take on what’s in store for nursing homes in 2024.

  • 14-D. The CEO-Board Chair Relationship: A Recipe for Success
  • Tuesday, April 16, 2024

    The CEO-Board Chair Relationship: A Recipe for Success

    A strong working relationship between an organization’s chief executive and the chair of its board of directors is critical to the success of senior living organizations. But that relationship can be complex. The missions of the CEO and board chair must align so the organization can move forward. However, there must also be a healthy tension between the two leaders to preserve the board’s independence. How do organizations go about creating this balance? Governance expert Jane Mack, CEOs, and board chairs will be on hand during this session to provide direction. They’ll explore the characteristics of a healthy and productive relationship between the board chair and the executive. You’ll take home model practices to help you and your board build that relationship.
