About the Program

The IHCA/ICAL AL/SLF Directors Certificate Program kicks off with an informative and interactive faceto-face event on April 19 in Bloomington that includes legislative and regulatory updates pertinent to AL/SLF centers and other regulatory issues such as HIPAA, Cybersecurity and an introduction to AHCA’s Long Term Care Trend Tracker. Two (2) web seminars will be scheduled each month in May, June, August and September that will cover a variety of topics such as pain management, financial management, the aging process, advanced directives and more. Mary Tellis-Nyak will present an allday leadership session in July and the final session will be in October with Scott Tittle, NCAL’s Executive Director. During the October session, Scott will discuss the book, Leadership and Self Deception (which participants will receive at the kick off session) and certificates of completion will be presented.
