Organizations partner for quality.

A leadership council was formed in late February by four long-term care professional organizations for the purpose of defining and meeting quality standards for long-term care facilities, according to an American College of Health Care Administrators (ACHCA) press release. ACHCA partnered with three additional organizations--the American Medical Directors Association, the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, and the National Association for Directors of Nursing Administration/Long-Term Care. Some objectives these organizations aim for include, promoting evidence-based practices, encouraging effective root-cause analysis of clinical and operational problems, and developing cross-disciplinary educational programs. They hope to use their long-term care expertise and knowledge to spread a consistent message and improve nursing home residents' quality of life, according to the press release.
