DECEMBER 13th, 2007

On December 13th, 2007 almost 500 labor-management participants gathered to continue the discussion of person-centered care at the QCC’s eighth conference: “Leading for Tomorrow in Times of Great Change.” Keynote speakers included Mary Jane Koren (V.P. — Commonwealth Fund), Bonnie Kantor (President — Pioneer Network) and Joe Baker (Assistant Deputy Secretary for Health and Human Services). A morning presentation on how organizations can “brand” their message more effectively, followed by a choice of 15 afternoon workshops rounded out the days events. The conference demonstrated the continuing efforts of labor and management working together to change the outlook of long-term care.
