SWPPA 2021 Education Conference Objectives
- Understanding what diversity, equity and inclusion really mean, especially as they relate to our population as we age. How do our communities and our long-term living and healthcare systems embrace these critical concepts, evolve and begin to implement viable systems that respect and honor diversity, equity and inclusion so we can thrive in an age friendly way?
- Workforce challenges are nothing new to the long-term living/healthcare sector, but the pandemic has taken our recruiting crisis to a whole new level. With unrelenting, unprecedented unemployment and a labor market that just isn’t bouncing back, businesses are being forced to downsize, underserve and even close. How can we successfully compete for a dwindling workforce and remain operational before access and quality take dramatic and possibly even unrecoverable hits? What happens if we can’t?
- A closer look at how technology continues to evolve and play a critical role in keeping us connected to each other and our world, during this pandemic and to whatever lies beyond it. What are the challenges and barriers to creating broad digital connection for seniors and those with disabilities and how can we work together to overcome them
